Aimed at charities and social enterprises, a new website has been launched that explains and simplifies social investment to help charities access it and which is backed by government and a range of sector bodies has been launched.

The Good Finance website contains the first directory of social investors and advisers, up-to-date information and case studies, and a tool to help charities assess whether social investment is right for them.

The project has been funded by Big Society Capital, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the social investment foundation Access. It has been supported by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, Social Enterprise UK, the community groups charity Locality, the creative agency Matter & Co and the social investment organisation Flip Finance.

The website was developed through research and user-focused design workshops with a wide range of charities and social enterprises across the UK.

It aims to address commonly identified problems in relation to social investment: that it is often confusing and there is too little information available about how and where to access it.
