Social Investment Scotland is a charity and social enterprise that provides loans to other charities, social enterprises and community groups across Scotland. We provide funding for social enterprises by borrowing money from banks and investors, and lending it out at affordable interest rates.
Our mission is simple. We aim to make a lasting, sustainable impact on communities, by helping organisations continue doing the great work they do or expand on that work. Since 2001 we’ve invested £43 million in almost 180 organisations around Scotland, and we continue to manage the largest social enterprise fund in the country.
