Making the money go further: Ways of investing in civil society

Reflections arising from a conference arranged by City Bridge Trust, February 2011

Following a high-level conference in February 2011, Dr Diana Leat shared her personal reflections on social investment. Her report examines the range of social investment models currently available, discusses the challenging funding climate, and highlights what further work is required to develop the social finance market place. The report makes clear that social investment is still a very new approach, and that it has the potential to complement (but not replace) more traditional philanthropic giving.
