We can provide between £250,000 to £3 million in the form of loans, participation loans and equity.
Our finance may be used for working capital, growth capital, property purchase or renovation, and other capital expenditure requirements. We also work closely with charities and social enterprises delivering local and/or national government contracts, either directly or under payment-by-results contracts.
We will invest in organisations that consider the delivery of their social mission a core part of their long term strategy.
Our investments are focused on social ventures that can deliver increased positive social impact as they build capacity and scale. We look for opportunities where impact and revenue generation are linked (e.g. social mission fulfilment is integral to financial success and vice versa). We aim to invest across diversified sectors such as (but not limited to) Jobs, Education and Training, Healthcare, Disability services, Children and Families, Housing, Criminal Justice, Social and Financial Inclusion, Community Development, and Ageing.
Please note, we do not provide grant funding. Our partner, the Social Investment Business, has a range of grant products currently available from community asset and services grants to investment readiness grants. Please visit www.sibgroup.org.uk
