Venue: Herons Lodge, Bradwell Rd, Great Holm, Milton Keynes MK8 9AA

Social investment is the use of repayable finance to help an organisation achieve a social purpose. Charities and social enterprises can 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.​​

It is often seen as a London-centric activity, which means it can be harder for social enterprises and outside of the capital to access social investors and gain a better understanding of the financial products available.

Visit www.goodfinance.org.uk if you would like to find out more.

Good Finance Live is a series of events running across the country. This event offers social enterprises and charities the opportunity to:

  • Speak to charity and social enterprise leaders who have already accessed social investment
  • Meet potential social investors
  • Learn about new social investment initiatives, funds and instruments
  • Ask questions in a safe and non-judgemental space
  • Understand more about when social investment is not suitable or appropriate

This event is open to all social enterprises and charities across Milton Keynes/Buckinghamshire, so please come along to learn more and find out how to go about applying.

Community Action: MK are facilitating the event with help and expertise from our friends at the NAVCA and Good Finance teams.
