Loans

Looking for a loan?

We are happy to help provide loans for new and existing customers who want to borrow more than £250,000. But we recognise that this might be far more than your organisation or business needs. In  that case, you might want to try approaching your local CDFI if you are looking for a loan or overdraft of up to £50,000.

Unity has provided wholesale (bulk) funding to a number of CDFI’s for more than 12 years, and we will be significantly increasing the number we support over the coming months through our relationship with the CDFA.

Details of your nearest CDFI can be found at: www.findingfinance.org.uk/my-nearest-cdfi/. When you contact your local CDFI, please be sure to mention that you found their details through the Unity website. 

We offer a range of fixed rates on loans, which can often be tailored to meet your needs. As every organisation is different, please contact your Relationship Manager who will be pleased to provide you with more details.

A full list of our available loans are below. We subscribe to the Lending Code, a full copy of which can be found here. Whilst this is a voluntary code, we are fully committed to meeting these standards. A booklet which provides an overview of the Code is available here

If you're responsible for your organisation's finances, you'll want to know that your money is with a bank that understands you, and the sector in which you operate.

You'll want to know that you'll be dealing with an experienced and award-winning UK-based team, dedicated to providing straight-forward, personal and friendly service - welcome to Unity Trust Bank!

Best Bank for Customer Service

Each year, Charity Finance magazine undertakes a survey of banking services. We are proud to have topped the Customer Service Satisfaction ratings in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. This survey, which featured responses from nearly 250 charities in 2011, showed that our customer service satisfaction rating is ahead of all other mainstream banks.

And because we want to ensure that you continue to receive the best service we can offer, we engage a third party agency, called 121, to make calls to a random sample of our customers each month to identify what they think we do well and highlight whether there are areas where we can improve. All of this feedback is reviewed and, where we can make our service better, we take steps to do so.
