Please note: Applications to this fund will be closing soon, reopening in late 2020. Our final round of decision making for now will be in April 2020. If you wish your application to be considered in this round, please submit your expression of interest by 31st December 2019.

Use this form to let us know if your community organisation is interested in applying for a loan to help you grow your trading activities to generate more sustainable income.
We can offer loans of up to £50,000, interest-free for up to five years. Depending on the local needs you are addressing, we might also be able to offer some grant funding alongside a loan to support your work.
You should only complete this form if you can answer 'yes' to all of the following questions:
  • Is your organisation run for the benefit of the community, rather than for private profit?
  • Do you own or manage a building or outdoor space that’s used for a wide range of community activities?
  • Do you involve a wide range of local people in your work, including more disadvantaged members of the community?
  • Do you have realistic plans to develop trading activities that will grow your long-term income?
  • Are you prepared to take on a loan that will need to be repaid?
