Service Trust (LIST)
Growing a Social Investment Market
“Britain needs new ways of tackling some very stubborn
and expensive problems such as fractured communities,
homelessness and high rates of re-offending. Social
entrepreneurs and the social ventures they lead bring
innovative solutions by combining social mission with
sustainable business models.”
