Big Society Capital improves the lives of people in the UK by connecting social investment to charities and social enterprises to achieve more. We believe the greatest chance to improve lives comes when investors and enterprises are both motivated by the social mission. We engage with investors, fund managers, charities and social enterprises to make it easier to use social investment. With our co-investors, we have made over £1bn of new capital available to organisations with a social mission, through investments into fund managers and social banks. We have a special focus on: providing homes for people in need; supporting communities to improve lives; and early action to prevent problems.
