A new ‘Social Investment Toolkit’ produced for the Children’s Partnership is of relevance to voluntary organisations and social enterprises in general.
The toolkit maps out how an organisation can ready itself for social investment, putting in place a robust business plan alongside a theory of change to ensure social targets are met. The common types of social investment, key elements and checklists for a good bid are all included in the twelve page guide.
Find ‘VCSE Social Investment Toolkit: A guide for voluntary organisations on social investment’ (pdf, 2MB) is now available via http://thechildrenspartnership-knowledge.org.uk/1073 (link updated March 2015). Or direct link to pdf.
