Good Finance, a sector-wide website and collaborative project, is now live, offering resources to help charities and social enterprises make the most of the opportunities of social investment.

The resource has launched following a year of research and design with the sector.

It is funded by Big Society Capital, Access and DCMS, with support from sector partners including NCVO, Social Enterprise UK, Locality, the creative agency Matter & Co, and the social investment organisation Flip Finance.

It aims to:

1.      Improve knowledge of social investment, what is it, what it can be used for and the journey & process is requires

2.      Enable organisations to make informed decisions, based on their needs and situation, not because of embedded attitudes

3.      Help connect organisations to the right investors to talk to base on shared values

The stimulus behind it is to overcome the commonly cited problem that that social investment is confusing and complex to understand.

Good Finance has been live in beta format since the start of the project last year. 

The new website contains up to date content and case studies, a tool to help users assess if social investment is right for them and the first ever directory of social investors and advisers.
