We measure our success in terms of the impact we create. All of our investments deliver positive change for individuals, communities, and the wider society.
We invest in organisations across the UK
It doesn’t matter where in the UK you are – our funds are open to social purpose organisations across the country.
Our Impact Methodology
We believe that social enterprises are rising to the challenge of finding innovative, sustainable solutions to the UK’s biggest social problems. Which is why we provide mission-driven organisations with the finance they need to achieve their impact goals. At Big Issue Invest we turn capital into products, and products into impact.
In 2021/22, Big Issue Invest supported 138 social enterprises across the UK with £37.5 million Assets Under Management.
We provided £2.7 million of grants to 105 organisations to help them restart and recover after the Covid-19 disruption, as delivery partners of the 2021 Social Enterprise Support Fund, with focus on social enterprises led by diverse teams and individuals with lived experience.
