In September 2016 in Tokyo, Daniel Brewer was privileged to participate in a small way in the cross-party campaign to secure assets in Dormant Accounts in Japan for social innovation. 

He shared information about the ecosystem that was emerging in the UK: legal structures such as Community Interest Companies and Community Benefit Societies; tax reliefs like Community Investment Tax Relief and more recently Social Investment Tax Relief; technical assistance grants building capacity in social enterprises and helping them navigate transaction and contract hurdles.

So when, this month, as a guest of the Japanese Cabinet Office, he was invited back to Tokyo alongside other users of Dormant Account money from Canada and the Republic of Ireland, he was keen to see how the market has developed.
