Social Impact Bonds Conference

Social Impact Bonds Conference

Social Impact Bonds Conference is to be held on 14th March 2012 at The Elim Centre, Glasgow.

With austerity measures and Westminster budget cuts affecting budgets for Scottish Government, Scotland’s local authorities and public bodies, there will be an inevitable reduction in both spending on services and preventative spend to tackle Scotland’s social problems.  With Social Impact Bond pilots in place in England, we ask if this model, or an equivalent, could help fund outcome-based programmes through private investment.  Will this allow Scotland’s third sector to deliver high quality services, create a fairer society with greater opportunity and potentially generate long-term savings to the public purse?

Keynote Speakers:

Toby Eccles
Development Director
Social finance

Andrew Muirhead
Cheif Executive
