So you've got an idea. No, a dream.

A dream that could make a difference in your community - to change something by solving a problem or creating an opportunity. First, you need to talk to somebody about a loan to make it happen.

We might well be that somebody. And we're listening.

Yes, if you’re involved in:

  • Community projects, including charities and faith-based initiatives.
  • Social enterprises – e.g., training or employment initiatives, rural development projects, co-operatives.
  • Sports clubs – e.g., facilities, amenities, equipment, resources, etc.

 

If success for your organisation is social change or social impact, you’re in the right place.

  • The purchase, construction or renovation of building.
  • Purchasing equipment.
  • Bridging funding gaps.
  • Restructuring existing debt.
