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?
