Advocacy

The Social Investment Forum members advocate to ensure the social investment market can work effectively, for investors, intermediaries and social enterprises and charities on the frontline. 

What has this work to date meant in practice?

  • co-ordinated joint responses to government consultations
  • joint letters on specific issues to advocate for changes to social investment regulation
  • inviting key government officials / experts to share information + take questions
  • helping broker joint social investment fringe events at party conferences
  • circulating policy briefings and papers to share up-to-date knowledge
  • liaising with partner organisations to support their policy work

Recent successes include campaigning for amendments to the Financial Services Bill to allow regulators to recognise the different objectives and nature of social investment in the way they act (see articles in Third Sectorand Civil Society), and being central to the recent introduction of the Social Investment Tax Relief.
