Working in partnership
All over the UK, the pandemic has further highlighted the need for better ways of addressing complex social issues. This is hard to do through traditionally siloed public service delivery. Local social enterprises and charities are often best placed to deliver a range of these public services. They tackle many issues, from supporting people into work and improving educational attainment, to reducing reoffending and tackling addiction.
The role of social impact investment
Social impact investment can create a system that improves the lives of people with complex needs, creating better value in public service delivery and targeting prevention rather than crisis response. It also allows social enterprises and charities to collaborate on service design, enables flexible delivery, and ensures accountability.
We help bring together multiple parties to design and deliver services which align the interests of commissioners, delivery organisations and social investors. We work with specialist fund managers who have deep connections with delivery organisations and the commissioners who pay for successful outcomes.
