Life Chances Fund event 17/2/17 - post event page

The Life Chances Fund (LCF) is an £80 million top-up fund, whose objective is to help those people in society who face the most significant barriers to leading happy and productive lives. The £80 million has been committed by central government to provide contributions to outcome payments for payment-by-results contracts, which involve socially minded investors - i.e. towards Social Impact Bonds (SIBs). These contracts must be locally commissioned and aim to tackle complex social problems.  The fund is particularly focused on outcomes in early years and for young people.

The second call for Expressions of Interest opened in January 2017 and a launch event took place on February 17th 2017 in Nottingham. 

Presentations and other resources from the event can be downloaded.

Further guidance on how to apply and more information regarding social impact bonds and social investment can be found on the Life Chances Fund homepage.
