We are the leading Responsible Finance provider in the East Midlands and South East Midlands

As the Responsible Finance provider in the East Midlands and South East Midlands**, we tailor our services to meet your needs. Also known as Community Development Finance Institutions, Responsible Finance providers lend to entrepreneurs and SMEs that can’t access business finance from traditional lenders.

By providing an alternative and responsible finance service that is backed by the government, we help to transform lives and create a positive economic, social and environmental impact in the areas we serve.

Support every step of the way

Since we were established in 1989, we have helped thousands of entrepreneurs and have a wealth of experience in helping businesses access the right finance for their needs.

We understand that starting, managing and growing a successful business does not stop with accessing business finance and successfully managing cash flow, which is why we’ve expanded our services over the years beyond business loans to ensure we support you every step of the way.

From pre-start advice to aftercare support, we can help you create your business plan, offer advice on maintaining a healthy cash flow and help promote your business through our own marketing. After all, your success is our success and the success of the communities we serve.

*Subject to loan fund eligibility
** We predominantly cover the East Midlands and South East Midlands regions but can support a number of businesses outside of this region.
