What we do

We provide loans, grants and strategic support to charities and social enterprises to help them improve people’s lives. 

We have helped hundreds of organisations become more resilient and sustainable so that they can grow and increase their impact.

We were one of the UK’s first social investors and since 2002 have provided over £380 million of loans and grants to charities and social enterprises.
