DR UK – Disabled People’s Organisations and Social Investment

/ Diversity, Learning Resource

Supported by the Connect Fund, Disability Rights UK (DR UK) is working in partnership with Traverse (formerly known as the OPM Group) to conduct a project aimed at helping Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) better understand and engage with social investment.

As part of the project, DR UK carried out a Call for Evidence to DPOs to understand their awareness, perceptions and experiences of social investment. This report sets out the methods and findings relating to the Call for Evidence, and it should be read as the first scoping stage of the project overall.

The Call for Evidence provides a good overview of DPOs awareness and experiences of social investment, and also describes a number of other contextual and organisational issues that have implications for their likelihood to engage with social investment in the future.
