Social investment has attracted huge attention in the UK in recent years, with support coming from a growing number of investors, including philanthropists and grant-making trusts. The Labour government stimulated the development of this market, through its Social Investment Task Force and The Social Investment Business.
At NPC, we have been studying the social investment sector for two years, and have found no practical, straightforward guidance for charities about the subject.
We have therefore produced this report to help charities learn about social investment, find out about its opportunities and risks, and work out whether it might be right for them.
