Big Issue Invest

We back human potential

Big Issue Invest supports social businesses and charities to deliver social, economic, and environmental impact across the United Kingdom. Since 2005 we have supported over 550 organisations with over £80 million in funding. We offer a range of repayable finance options, from loans as small as £20,000 to larger investments of up to £3.5 million. Current investees range from start-ups to established organisations, but they all share the Big Issue Group’s mission to create innovative solutions through enterprise to unlock social and economic opportunities for people in the UK affected by poverty.
