Social Investment Guide

Social Enterprise UK & Big Lottery Fund

You have probably stumbled over the word social investment and wondered what it's all about.

The aim of this guide is to give you an overview of the UK social investment market and help you to work out whether and how it's relevant to your organisation - it's for anyone involved with a voluntary and community organisation or social enterprise (VCSE) as a trustee, chief executive or member of staff.

This guide includes a helpful infographic that introduces social investment in a minute, along with a suite of insightful case study videos featuring Birdcage, My Time CIC and Fordhall Organic Farm.

The guide has been produced by programme partners, Social Enterprise UK for Big Lottery Fund.
