Our Work

Social investment

Social investment, or impact investment as it is also known, can provide a vital funding stream to charities and social enterprises, and offers funders a new way to support the causes and organisations they care about. But this new style of finance is complex and, since it is designed to achieve social as well as financial returns, it doesn’t suit everyone.

We have advised clients ranging from Princes Regeneration Trust and Scope, to Cheyne and Big Society Capital.  In the last year, 1 in 2 of our consulting clients have used our services before and 97% of our clients say they would recommend us to others.

How we work with you

NPC offers expert advice on all aspects of social investment. Our unique position at the nexus between charities and funders allows us to understand both sides of the investment relationship, and our independence means we have no conflicts of interest when supporting market development initiatives.

We bring our expertise in impact measurement, strategy and outcomes frameworks, and combine this with a collaborative, cross-sector approach and an experienced team.
