Social Investment: promise and possibility
Tuesday, November 27, 2012 from 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
ESRC/TSRC Policy Seminar in collaboration with Nesta
Social investment - using finance to generate social as well as economic return – is gaining popular and political currency. Optimists believe we are seeing a shift change in the way people invest, which will create significant opportunities for social and charitable funding.
But what does social investment really mean for charities and voluntary organisations? How can they access social investment funds? What models might they benefit from? And are there limits to what social investment can achieve?
This seminar will look at different forms of social investment and explore changing patterns of funding. It will discuss the realities and possibilities of social finance for organisations and communities, and ask: how can we harness the potential of social investment to create sustainability and social change?
