Social Investment

Event Date: 17 November 2017

Friday 17 November 2017, 10am-12.30pm – 151 Dale Street.

Social investment can seem like a daunting prospect for voluntary and community sector groups, but at a time when grants are becoming harder to come by and trading within organisations is on the increase, it is important to consider different options to secure income.

Is your organisation currently looking at social investment, have you heard of it but are not sure, or do you want to expand the ways you can generate income?

First Ark Group provides investment opportunities that include a 70% loan and 30% grant option with a value of between £50,000 to £150,000 and an accessible means to identify whether your organisation is at the right stage to access this. Where needed, they also offer a separate grant of up to £15,000 to build your capacity to become ‘investment ready’.

LCVS and First Ark invite you to this free event to learn more about the benefits of social investment, the growing social economy in Liverpool and how these can help you and your organisation to change even more people’s lives!
