Social Investment Scotland is a charity and social enterprise that provides loans to other charities, social enterprises and community groups across Scotland.
Our mission is simple. We aim to make a lasting, sustainable impact on communities, by helping organisations continue doing the great work they do or expand on that work. Since 2001 we've invested over £55 million in over 270 organisations across Scotland.
We thoroughly support organisations through their journey of taking on social investment. Our team understand the challenges and demands of the third sector and we have no application forms, preferring face to face discussions and look to find solutions that are the right fit for charities and social enterprises.
We provide funding for working capital, growth or acquisition, to purchase or refurbish properties, equipment and other capital expenditure, or to bridge grants or community share offers.
We support the whole sector to consider the benefits of social investment with investment readiness workshops throughout the year and a range of other workshops and events to build capacity and confidence in social investment.
