Our Social Impact

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 between 20k and 3m in social enterprises and charities
Social Impact Reporting

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. Read our 2020 Impact Report to find out more.

Some of our investees also produce great reports each year that demonstrate their social impact. One of our Power Up investees Hey Girls, an organisation tackling period poverty, recently launched a social impact review and HCT Group published a social impact report that shows the difference it has made to its community.
