Reinvest in ourselves

The numbers tend to vary depending on who you listen to, but Scotland’s Third Sector is worth a bob or two. Something in the region of £400m is currently estimated to be held in reserves.  If just a fraction of that amount (presumably sitting on deposit earning very little interest) was redirected into the sector, the impact could be massive. This is raison d’etre of the Scottish Community Reinvestment Trust.  Next month, SCRT hosts an event to explore how this investment approach would create a more equal and sustainable society.


Pauline Hinchion, SCRT

‘Social Finance: Social Investment: Social Banking – what makes them Social?’

With the growth of Social Finance including Social Investment and Social Banking how do we ensure that it meets the demands of the wider third sector and what is the link between social finance and the creation of a more equal and sustainable society.

Scottish Community Re: Investment Trust is delighted to host the first Conference looking at Social Finance. The conference will be of interest to those who want to learn more about social finance; how we know that it is social and how it works in other countries.

Bringing together practitioners from a range of countries, delegates will be also be able to attend workshops and listen to panel discussions in order to inform their wider understanding of social finance.

SCRT’s first Conference  will be held on 19th Nov at the Roxburghe Hotel in Edinburgh. This event is the first of its kind in Scotland and a range of discounted rates are available to SCRT members and others.
