About the Event

Let's Talk Good Finance is a series of virtual events hosted by Good Finance which seek to dispel the myths and share knowledge surrounding social investment for charities and social enterprises.

At Let's Talk Good Finance: Pubs, Clubs and Community Hubs, we explore how different organisations have taken on different types of social investment to build resilience and scale their impact. There'll be a particular focus on organisations rooted in their communities - from farms employing local people, assets owned by the community, nurseries and youth centres supporting young people.

From attending this session, you'll gain an understanding of some of the different types of social investment available, and hear directly from people who have gone through the process in their own organisations. They'll share insights into the challenges, opportunities and impact social investment has delivered, plus their top tips for other leaders.
