Description

Taking a look at social investment as an alternative source of funding to tackle homelessness.

With the pressures from reduced funding and increasing demand on services, social investment could provide you with an alternative commissioning strategy and a new source of funding so that you can to continue to provide accommodation and support services. It is time to explore the opportunities that social investment offers.

This event will look at what social investment is, its role within a commissioning strategy for homelessness, and how it can provide a funding solution to help tackle homelessness.

Social investment is the use of repayable finance to achieve a social as well as a financial return. With a growing number of social investors and funds offering finance to charities and social enterprises across the UK, more organisations are turning to social investment to help them achieve their social missions.

The event will feature a number of social investment solutions, each highlighting a different way that charities are using social investment to support their work. Each case study will look at

  • how the investment works

  • what the commissioning process is

  • who the investment is appropriate for

  • what opportunities it offers

  • what risks are involved and where they lie.

Each model is one that you could replicate locally and might spark an idea for how you could use social investment to support your work.
