You may have seen recently, here at Big Society Capital we’ve just hit a milestone - a billion pounds of social investment committed by us and our co-investors and available to the sector.
Over half of it is already drawn down and being used at the front line. It’s real progress, tough work building up to this by investors and the charities and social enterprises working it out and making it succeed for their mission. It’s a milestone that means more charities and social enterprises using social investment to boost their work, more diversity of ways of using investment, most of all more people having better lives. And to check out some of that difference it’s made to people, our 5 year impact report is now available.
