You are currently viewing 29.11.2021 – QUALITY SOCIAL INVESTMENT – WHAT NEXT?
Social care and support providers need investment across the continent. Finance is required to shift to more community-based and user-driven services, to hire and train staff, to buy, renovate or build new infrastructure, as well as to make the most of the digital and green transition.

Many social providers struggle to get access to public investment across the continent; in particular to innovate to new forms of services. Given this situation, is there a role for private investment?
The answers to this question are increasingly along the line of “yes, under certain conditions”, followed by a “how can I access it?”.

Many social providers struggle to access private investment, very often due to a lack of capacity and knowledge as to how to do so. They are not alone as many investors are also struggling to fulfil the investment needs in the social field.

The Alliance for Inclusive Investment in Social Care and Support (a4i) project, co-funded by the Erasmus + programme, has brought together a consortium of social providers, banks and universities to identify the state of play of social investment, to co-construct a professional development programme on social investment, as well as to build consensus on what makes a good social investment project.

Join us on the 29th November at 14h to discuss and learn from social providers and users, investors, public authorities and universities about social investment and the project’s outputs.

Speakers include:

  • Maya Doneva, Secretary General, European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD)
  • Daniel Sorrosal, Secretary General, European Federation of Ethical and Alternative Banks and Financiers (FEBEA)
  • Silvia Manca, Head of Social Impact Programmes, European Investment Fund
