Social Infrastructure - Overview

Social infrastructure is designed to have a positive impact on communities and to develop a more inclusive and sustainable society.

CIM defines social infrastructure as community assets that facilitate social services with a particular focus on those assets that support the delivery of healthcare, housing and education.

This includes special schools that enable the provision of education for young people with learning disabilities and other associated conditions.

Set out below is a summary of the broad areas of activity for CIM within our definition of Social Infrastructure.

CIM is particularly focused on the relationship between specialist healthcare, education and housing. In each case there are today across the UK and the EU significant shortages of appropriate facilities and with a backdrop of growing demand.

We anticipate that institutional capital will play an increasingly important role in meeting this demand/supply imbalance.
