FINANCING CIVIL SOCIETY

A PRACTITIONER'S VIEW OF THE UK SOCIAL INVESTMENT MARKET

This CAF Venturesome report looks at the barriers to and opportunities for future development of the social investment market, in the context of the market's recent rapid growth.

It highlights financial risk aversion, a lack of understanding of financial needs and inefficiency in the marketplace as the key barriers to the sector achieving more social impact, and recommends greater co-investment, information sharing and a common language to help the demand and supply sides of the market better understand each other.
