GoodFinance.org.uk is website and collaborative project to help charities and social enterprises navigate social investment. We are pleased to have funded this site along with Big Society Capital and DCMS. The project was also supported by key sector partners including NCVO, Social Enterprise UK, Locality, the creative agency Matter & Co, and the social investment organisation Flip Finance.
The site addresses a commonly identified problem from organisations – that social investment is often confusing and complex to understand, with there being too little information available about how and where to access it. It 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. These features are as a result of extensive research and user-focused design workshops with a wide range of charities and social enterprises across the UK.
After a year of research and co-design with the sector it was relaunched in April 2017 – you can read more information in our news item.
