Social Bridging Finance - Interim Evaluation
Our Social Bridging Finance pilot aims to build knowledge around an alternative funding model which brings together a working partnership of public sector, third sector and independent funders. SBF is currently being trialled by three demonstration projects based in Dundee, East Renfrewshire and South Ayrshire. As a funding approach, SBF aims to ensure the long-term sustainability of third sector services which can evidence success by enabling public services to innovate and move resources towards preventative services and measures. This report shares the findings of an initial evaluation by Iconic Consulting and Glasgow Caledonian University.
