The National Council for Voluntary Organisations and the social lender CAF Venturesome have launched a free online tool designed to explain social investment.

Social Investment Made Simple is hosted on KnowHow NonProfit, the NCVO’s information site for the sector, and contains examples of various types of social investment. It also offers case studies of charities that have successfully used social investment, and lists other places where charities can find support.

In a statement, the NCVO said the site was developed "in response to feedback from many people in the sector that there is a lack of clear and honest advice available to help organisations make informed decisions".

Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of the NCVO, said he felt social investment could be crucial for the sector’s long-term financial sustainability.

"By demystifying what can be a complex issue, we hope more voluntary organisations will be able to take full advantage of what is a major growth area for the sector," he said.
