Investing for
social impact

All Child (formerly West London Zone) received investment through an outcomes-based contract to help improve the lives of young people.

We are now Better Society Capital!

We are proud of the progress we have made so far on our mission to grow the social impact investment market and as the market has grown and our profile has increased, we feel the time is right to evolve our name to one that better articulates our mission while preserving a clear connection to what we have achieved so far.

We remain committed to the same mission and our current strategy, our scope of business remains unchanged. The change of name is about more accurately reflecting our work externally.

We know we cannot achieve our mission alone and look forward to our continued partnerships across the sector and beyond as Better Society Capital.
