Cabinet Office partners with RBS to launch Social Investment Awards

The Cabinet Office has launched a new social investment awards scheme in partnership with the bank RBS.

The Social Investment Awards are free to enter and are made up of five categories: community impact, global impact, investment readiness, investor access and new markets.

According to a statement from the Cabinet Office, the awards will highlight the effect that social investment is having and show investors that the market is ready for further growth.

The Community Impact Award will recognise the individual, organisation or product that has had the most significant social impact in communities, while the Investment Readiness Award will be given to the individual, organisation or product that has done the most to ensure that social businesses have the capacity to take on social investment.
