Through flexible investment, we help North West organisations have a wider social impact

We aim to make getting social investment easier, giving more help every step of the way. That means money to more social entrepreneurs and more social value for everyone.

Chances are you’re already making a huge social impact through what you do, you just need financial support and a helping hand to do more. You may be just starting out and need a financial boost to realise your true potential.

Wherever you are in your journey, our team are on hand to discuss your options.

What sets us apart from the rest?

Finance that fits around you

Charities and social enterprises can struggle to find finance that’s right for them. Often what’s available is unsuitable for established organisations to maintain and grow their social impact, or for new ones that need investment.

Wrap around support from start to finish

We can help you get ‘investment ready’, by accessing the Reach Fund, and when you become investment ready, help you apply for Invest for Impact, offering wrap around support.

Working with our established partners

Each of our partners bring their unique resources and expertise, which enables us to provide extra support, knowledge and advice to those we work with.

On the 1st of April 2020, we transformed from First Ark Social Investment to Livv Investment, part of the Livv Housing Group. We believe that focusing hard on what matters most to customers and making our business basics as straightforward as possible are the keys to success.

It’s exciting times, after 10 years as First Ark Group, we are embarking on the next stage of our evolution as we become business ready for the next decade and beyond, ever committed to making a positive impact and creating flourishing communities.
