The Social Investment Taskforce was created in 2000 to investigate and apply the principles of community development finance to the creation of enterprise in disadvantaged areas.

The taskforce members were selected for their expertise and all were unpaid. The taskforce was resourced by the UK Social Investment Forum, the Development Trusts Association and the New Economics Foundation. Treasury officials attended all four taskforce meetings in an observing capacity.
