Traverse are trusted advisors, helping service providers and commissioners understand and engage with Social Investment or Social Impact Investment. These forms of financing - normally targeting charities, social enterprises and socially minded businesses - are increasingly relevant in today's economic context as social challenges have mounted with public funding coming under growing pressure.
We are recognised experts in helping service providers and commissioners consider whether Social Investment is appropriate and adds value.
