The Big Lottery Fund has announced it will invest £11.25 million in the social impact bond run by the social investment bank, Social Finance.
Social impact bonds work by drawing up a contract between the government and a third sector provider to run a project to combat a certain social ill.
Investors from the private sector can then invest in the bond and receive a payout based on the performance of the project.
