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.

Is a loan the right answer? Top 5 questions answered here

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.

What we don’t do:

  • Offer grants.
  • Lend to private businesses or individuals.
  • Lend to projects outside the Third Sector.

  • The purchase, construction or renovation of a building.
  • Purchasing equipment.
  • Bridging funding gaps.
  • Restructuring existing debt.
  • Cash shortfalls.
  • Working capital.

  • We provide long-term loans and short-term loans, as well as bridging finance.
  • Loans may also be provided on both a secured and unsecured basis.

  • Our loans range from €/£10k–600k.
  • Your loan will be tailored to your needs – and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
  • If you have a figure in mind, try our Loan Calculator. It’s a fast, handy way for you to see if the repayment amount is manageable.
  • Remember, the Loan Calculator is for reference only and is not a loan offer. Before we can agree a loan, you need to make a full application and our lending requirements must be met. Click on View other FAQs to see what makes a successful loan application.
