There are two types of organisational capacity-building required by the social sector – one is around building strong resilient organisations which can grow sustainably. The other is around building organisations which can reliably and predictably produce meaningful social outcomes, eventually for large numbers of people. Both are crucial for the social investment market to flourish, but the latter has been neglected in attempts to develop this market.
- considers the reasons for this neglect, and its longer-term implications
- concludes that the gap in funding and support for the development of ‘outcome-producing’ capabilities is a threat to the development of an effective social investment market which uses finances to solve social problems
- makes recommendations designed to help build sector capacity, and align incentives, to produce social outcomes.
