Big Issue Invest is a principal investment arm of The Big Issue Company Limited specializing in investing in social enterprises, charities, and businesses that are socially-driven. It does not provide grants. It prefers to invest in companies which have a focus on at least one of the following: jobs, education and training; health and social care; social and financial Inclusion; community development; and community-driven environmental Initiatives. It seeks to invest in companies with operations based in the United Kingdom (social enterprises with head office in the United Kingdom but operations overseas are considered on a case-by-case basis).  Set up in 2005 as the social investment arm of The Big Issue, Big Issue Invest exists to further The Big Issue’s activities and reach by financing the growth of sustainable social enterprises and charities.
