Funding Good Outcomes: using social investment to support payment by result

September 2012
Charities Aid Foundation


"This is the first of a series of evidence-based discussion papers from the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), drawing on our experience of working to ensure the effective funding of civil society in order to highlight key issues and make recommendations for future policy development. This discussion paper primarily draws on a decade of financing experience through our pioneering social investment arm, CAF Venturesome.
In recent years, an increasing number of the investments CAF Venturesome has made have been linked to charities’ involvement in public service delivery. This has included dealing with many requests for finance from organisations with payment by results contracts. The lessons learned from that experience have informed this report, which has been written by Rhodri Davies, Policy Manager at CAF."
