Past, present and future: Social Finance at 10
We have developed a compelling approach and a set of techniques and tools to help rethink the ways to tackle entrenched social problems. Our models of social change are based on developing deep partnerships across the voluntary, public and private sectors to address the underlying issues to help change people’s lives for the better. We seek transformation that is sustainable, can scale and can harness investment.
It is this approach that led to the pioneering Social Impact Bond in Peterborough. There is now a global market with 100+ Impact Bonds in 24 countries raising nearly $400 million.
This report highlights the breadth and depth of Social Finance’s work over the past ten years. It shows that our distinct approach is having impact not only in the UK but across the world.
