Social Investment in the Scottish Third Sector
Third sector organisations (TSOs) rely on a complex mix of given money, earned money, and, to a lesser degree, borrowed money. They depend on grants, donations, payments for contracted services, trading, and sales. Social investment is said to be a different way of funding the activities of TSOs. Defined as the use of repayable finance to achieve social as well as a financial return, social investment can be used by charities and social enterprises to increase their positive impact on the society. However, repayable forms of finance are not common in the third sector and it remains largely unclear how the development of the social investment market affects TSOs. The project aims to address this by unpacking the development paths of TSOs involved in the social investment market.
