Event description

Description

There are a growing number of investors keen to ensure their money is used for great causes as much as the return they will receive. This comes at a time when the availability of grant funding is reducing and becoming far more competitive.

But Social Investment is not widely well-understood and isn't right for all charitable organiastions and Social Enterprises. This event is aimed at helping charities and social entrepreneurs gain a clearer understanding of what it is, how it works, as well as the options, benefits and challenges. It is also a place for active and potential social investors to meet leaders of local charities and social enterprises.

It offers the opportunities for charities and social enterprises to:

  • Hear from and speak to peers who have already accessed social investment

  • Meet potential social investors

  • Learn about new social investment initiatives, funds and instruments

  • Be able to ask questions in a safe and non-judgemental space

  • Understand more about when social investment is not suitable or appropriate
