Social and Sustainable Capital was founded in 2012 to support charities and social enterprises in the UK with loans and investments. Our mission is to help these organisations deliver scalable and sustainable solutions to social issues by providing them with the appropriate capital to allow them to grow and to help those most in need in our society today.
We are a social enterprise ourselves and we recycle repaid investments to support other organisations who need it. Since we launched our funds in 2014 we’ve invested over £8 million in 12 ventures tackling key issues such as poverty, homelessness, health and social care, unemployment, community cohesion and access to education.
Our investments are tailored to the needs of the organisations we finance and can be used for investing in staff and other overheads, developing a new product or service, buying and/or developing property, supporting payment by results (PBR) programmes and other contracts as well as bridging finance.
We offer both secured and unsecured investments.
