Good Finance, a website to help charities and social enterprises understand social investment, has been launched. A beta version of the site was launched last year and has now been refreshed following "a year of research and co-design with the sector", according to a statement.  It has been funded jointly by Big Society Capital, Access and DCMS and has the backing of NCVO, Social Enterprise UK, and Locality.

The website includes content and case studies as well as a tool to help organisations assess whether social finance is suitable. 

Kieran Whiteside, project manager for Good Finance, said: “Our hope is that this new website will help charities and social enterprises feel empowered to make informed and educated investment decisions that are right for them.” 

Nick Temple, deputy chief executive of Social Enterprise UK, said: “We know that the social investment landscape can sometimes feel fragmented, difficult to understand and difficult to access. That's why we are delighted to be involved in Good Finance which has been designed with the users at its heart - and is also a genuine collaboration between key organisations."
