No 1 for Availability of Finance

Our doors are open

When it comes to funding socially-minded organisations, our door is firmly open.

We will support your organisation’s borrowing needs so that you can continue to make a difference.

Whether you’re looking to expand your existing premises or acquire a new one, you’ll receive advice and guidance from an experienced relationship manager, who will tailor a solution based on your requirements.

Our focus is on financial sustainability and positive social impact, so if your organisation is seeking a loan that will create jobs or bring wider economic, social or environmental benefit, we’d like to talk to you.

Our customers rated us No 1 for Availability of Finance in Charity Finance Banking Survey 2015 – they also voted us top in 7 other customer satisfaction categories.

We offer a loan to cover a wide range of possible needs, including:

  • Refinance
  • Property purchase
  • Acquisition finance
  • Property refurbishment
  • Property development
  • 100% loan finance (for social enterprises or charities that require a loan for a financially sustainable project, but do not have the capital for a deposit). We work with Big Issue Invest to provide 100% of the finance you require.
