This paper draws together Big Society Capital’s experience as a social investor in Social Impact Bonds to-date.

Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) were first developed in 2010 with the launch of the Peterborough SIB. Since then, there have been 16 more SIBs commissioned in the UK aimed at improving services including tackling special education needs, young people not in education, employment or training, adoption, children in care, homelessness and reoffending. As the market continues to develop, and commissioners and investors are becoming increasingly interested in the potential for SIBs, this paper draws together Big Society Capital’s experience as a social investor in these programmes to-date.
