Social enterprises and charities in Bristol and the surrounding area will be hearing about options to secure social investment to help grow their businesses or to acquire a capital asset, at an event to be held at Bevan Brittan’s Bristol offices on Thursday 14 September.

The ‘Let’s Talk Good Finance’ seminar series is being organised by Big Society Capital, the UK-wide organisation that connects social investment to charities and social enterprises that are creating social change. 

The event (which is being curated by Voscur, Bristol’s voluntary, community and social enterprise support and development agency) is one of a series that will enable charity and social enterprise leaders to learn about social investment, meet potential social investors, hear from their peers who have already accessed social investment, and discuss the key considerations involved.

Delegates will hear first-hand from the well-known Bearpit Bristol, the CIC (community interest company) focused on regenerating the St James Roundabout area using food retail and targeted community events.  In January this year, the Bearpit received an investment of £112,000 from the Resonance Bristol Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) fund.

As well as experts from Big Society Capital, Voscur, Bristol & Bath Regional Capital CIC, Unity Trust Bank and Sue Cooper Consulting, social enterprise leaders will also hear from Richard Hiscoke, social investment expert at Bevan Brittan, who will discuss the availability of social investment tax relief.

Richard Hiscoke said: “We fully support the initiatives that Big Society Capital is using to transform the social investment market to make it easier for social enterprises and charities to access social investment and for individuals to become social investors.  It is a privilege to be able to support Voscur and the sector in hosting this Good Finance event.”
