4 INTRODUCTION TO SOCIAL IMPACT BONDS 4 The Social Impact Bond is a means of investing in intensive prevention services where improved social outcomes are likely but not certain. Social Impact Bonds are contracts with public sector commissioners under which government commits to pay for improved social outcomes. On the back of this contract, investment is raised from non-governmental investors. This investment is used to pay upfront for a range of interventions to improve social outcomes. Investors are repaid only if successful outcomes are achieved. Investors stand to lose some or all of their capital if positive outcomes are not achieved. The investor takes the risk that the interventions do not deliver the desired outcomes. The greater the improvement, the greater the financial return to investors. SOCIAL IMPACT BONDS BRING NEW INVESTMENT TO BEAR ON SOCIAL ISSUES, AND ALIGN ALL PARTIES AROUND A COMMON GOAL. Social Finance 2012

5 APPLICATIONS OF THE SIB MODEL 5 1. Developing Edge of Care SIB 2. Residential Care SIB Social Investor Social investors 1) Investors capitalise company 1) Investors capitalise service provider 2) Outcomes based contract with ECC, based on fewer young people needing care SIB Company Action for Children 3) MST service contract Children's Charity 2) Outcomes based contract with MCC, based on (1) fewer young people needing residential care placements, and (2) improved wellbeing 3) MTFC service contract between social investors and the Children s Charity Young people & families Adolescents in residential care placements Essex County Council Manchester City Council Areas of current feasibility analysis include: additional approaches to supporting children & young people; better alcohol and drug services; range of community health & social care models; health & employment, domestic Social abuse. Finance 2013

6 WHEN MIGHT A SOCIAL IMPACT BOND BE APPROPRIATE? 6 We have found that a number of criteria must be met for a Social Impact Bond to be suitable: A compelling social need The existence of promising interventions to meet this need Clear benefits from using social investment to fund interventions transfer of risk to investors 4 5 The ability to structure social investment to address the problem The ability to structure an outcomes-based contract Robust outcome metrics with clear attribution Identifiable target population Sufficient saving for investors and commissioners 6 The opportunity to achieve significant social impact, and develop a proposition that is attractive to social investors WE TEND TO FIND IT ESSENTIAL TO TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF APPROACHES, IN LOCAL AREAS, BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE DECISION TO DEVELOP A SOCIAL IMPACT BOND

7 CASE STUDY: DEVELOPING THE ESSEX SOCIAL IMPACT BOND 7 There are four main areas we work through when developing SIBS Social Issue Target Population Intervention Outcomes Metrics What was the problem Essex identified? Which group of children would most benefit? What services could improve outcomes for this group? How should success be measured and paid for? Poor outcomes and high costs associated with children entering the care system year olds at risk of entering care or who recently entered care; key issues are behavioural problems or family breakdown Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST) identified as the intervention with the strongest evidence base Total number care placement days saved compared against a comparison group within Essex before the SIB

8 WHAT ATTRACTS SOCIAL INVESTORS TO SIBS 8 Local interest Some are keen to support their local communities e.g. Community Foundations Social issue All investors are committed to improving outcomes for vulnerable young people Essex SIB Investors Learning and innovation Essex SIB attracted Belgian foundation and German social investment fund Engagement Some like to be involved in business case development Intervention Scaling up promising approaches which have potential to transform outcomes and reshape service delivery Applies investment approach to delivering improved social outcomes Rigour, focus, data analysis
