Social investment made simple defines the different forms of social investment to help voluntary and community organisations understand what could work for their organisation. It uses case studies to show how charities have used social investment successfully, and signposts users to further sources of support.
The resource has been developed jointly by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations and CAF Venturesome.It was put together in response to feedback from many in the sector that there is a lack of clear and honest advice about available to help organisations make informed decisions about social investment and what is right for them.
Paul Cheng, Head of CAF Venturesome commented, “We are delighted to be working with NCVO on launching this new online resource about social investment. Although grants will always be a crucial form of funding for the sector, charities need to understand how the full spectrum of social investment may help them become more financially resilient in both good times and bad.”
