Deadline for Interest Free Loans

Wed 11 Dec 2019

Apply by 31 December for interest-free loans to support community spaces

Over the past two years, we’ve awarded more than £2.1 million in interest-free loans and grants to help community spaces all over the UK build their trading activities and become more financially sustainable.  

Spaces supported include a community-run lido in Cornwall, a village hall in the Hebrides and a co-operative farm in Northern Ireland. 

Grangetown United, a community centre in the north east of England, received £80,000 of investment to help turn a derelict building into a vibrant hub for local people.  Watch our video below, or read more

We’re closing our current investment offer to new applicants on 31 December 2019, so we can evaluate and re-launch the programme in 2020.
