There are over 100,000 social enterprises in the UK, with 22% operating in some of its most deprived communities. Despite this, minority-led social enterprises, that is, those led by people from racialised and LGBTQI communities as well as those led by women and people with disabilities, face disproportionate barriers to accessing social investment.

The Addressing Imbalance programme launched in 2021 with the aim of connecting and engaging with organisations led by individuals who identify with one or more of these demographics. Our goal is to provide learning and resources to empower leaders with the tools they need to make an informed decision when considering social investment.

We want to see a higher percentage of social investments throughout the UK being made into diverse organisations and a reduction in those reporting barriers to access in comparison to their counterparts.
