Impact Services - Big Society Capital

Working on the development of the Big Society Capital Outcomes Matrix

 

Investing for Good led the development of the Big Society Capital Outcomes Matrix  to help develop consistent and coherent approaches among social investors.  Working with the group of foundations and intermediaries convened by Big Society Capital, including Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Big Issue Invest, NESTA, Bridges Ventures, Social Investment Business, Deutsche Bank, Triodos Bank, and CAF Venturesome, we developed best practice guidelines and a practical investor toolkit, including a high-level taxonomy of impact analysis across the social investment marketplace.  

It was critical that we reflected the experiences of social purpose organisations, as well as our peers, in order to create a tool that had broad application and captured a comprehensive set of outcomes and measures. The result is more common ground regarding social impact assessment in the social sector.
