Big Society Capital improves the lives of people in the UK by connecting social investment to charities and social enterprises.
We believe investment has a significant role to play in the world, helping to deliver solutions to some of the most entrenched social challenges. We know that investment can help charities and social enterprises achieve more,
with over 3,000 organisations having already used social investment in the UK to grow their social impact.
We are an independent social impact investment institution, set-up by Sir Ronald Cohen and Nick O’Donohoe with £600 million of permanent capital from Dormant Bank Accounts and the High Street Banks. We are governed by senior representatives from the social, financial and government sectors.
