Social Enterprise Investment Fund evaluation - phase one: scoping, review and methodology development.
Lyon, Fergus and Gabriel, Madeleine and Millar, Ross (2010) Social Enterprise Investment Fund evaluation - phase one: scoping, review and methodology development. Working Paper. TSRC and Health Services Management Centre at the University of Birmingham, Birmingham.
The £100m Social Enterprise Investment Fund (SEIF) aims to stimulate and increase the numbers of Social Enterprises (SEs) that are involved in the delivery of health and social care services via grants, loans and equity investments. The SEIF seeks to generate sufficient returns on its investments to become self-sustaining over the initial fund period (2007-2011).
The evaluation of the SEIF aims to:
- assess the effectiveness of the Fund in supporting SEs;
- identify the impact of the SEIF including some evidence of the types of social benefits produced through the activities of SEs; and
- identify lessons and make recommendations for the future improvement of the SEIF and the role of SEs in the delivery of health and social care services.
The objectives of this component of the research have been to:
- explore stakeholder expectations for SEIF and establish a common view of how the success of SEIF should be measured, and the mechanisms through which the SEIF is expected to achieve its outcomes;
- refine the study design in the light of the programme theories which have surfaced.
