What we do
Making social investment available to charities & social enterprises

There are lots of charities and social enterprises working hard to deal with some of the most challenging issues in the UK – such as youth unemployment, financial exclusion and homelessness. An increasing number of them want to use repayable finance to help them increase their impact on society, for example by growing their business, providing working capital for contract delivery, or buying assets. 

Big Society Capital has been set up to help make sure that these charities and social enterprises can find appropriate and affordable repayable finance to meet their capital needs. We have two roles - we are an investor and a champion.
