Social Enterprise Investment Fund

In June 2012, the Department of Health  announced a further investment of £19 million for social enterprises over the next year.

Since the Social Enterprise Investment Fund (SEIF) was launched in 2007, the Department of Health has invested more than £100 million in more than 600 social enterprises working across a wide range of health and social care areas, including disability services, mental health, substance misuse, carers’ organisations and supporting people with long term conditions. These enterprises include Jamie’s Farm, Norcare, Jets Foundation and HCT Group.

SEIF investment packages, which include grants and loans, have supported organisations at different stages, helping them become investment ready and then to scale up and grow.To find out more visit The Social Investment Business site.
