PHAST Social Impact Bonds - Delivering positive social change in public health
PHAST is developing and driving forward an innovative and dynamic approach to social change through a new programme of Social Impact Bonds (SIB's). SIB's provide an alternative long term strategy to deliver cost effective, positive outcomes for UK public health, driving positive social change for the future. Social impact bonds (SIBs) are a tool to help impact-driven providers deliver ‘outcomes contracts’, by giving them access to project financing and management support from socially-minded investors.
If you are interested in becoming involved with PHAST SIB initiatives,
