Big Society Capital
About Big Society Capital
Big Society Capital's aim is to improve the lives of people in the UK by connecting investment to charities and social enterprises that are creating social change.
We do this by bringing together our investment capital (upto £600m), our expertise (team of 40) and our network of partners. Over the next three years we will help to building broad understanding of social investment as well as focus on priority areas where social investment has a catalytic role to play in addressing social problems.
WHAT WE DO
BUILDING UNDERSTANDING & MAKING INVESTMENTS
Building Awareness and Understanding
We want to make it easier for more people and organisations to use social investment. We do this by working with partners to build understanding of social investment among charities and social enterprises, and also with potential investors.
We invest in intermediaries, who then invest in charities and social enterprises to tackle social issues across the UK. We focus on sustainable solutions that will achieve positive investment returns. We believe those solutions will be able to attract the most co-investors and, ultimately, achieve the greatest systemic change.
We take a rigorous approach in all we do. We expect the highest standards and continually strive for excellence
We are genuine in both our approach and aspiration. We value each member of our team and our partners for what they bring
We are passionate and energetic in our work to bring about our long-term vision of a thriving social investment market that enables positive social impact
We give our team the autonomy and flexibility to be entrepreneurial and creative. We have the courage to push boundaries and have a restless drive for change
We listen, learn, experiment and collaborate. And we are adaptive and flexible in responding to what we learn
