Our loans are used for a wide range of purposes, from providing accommodation for vulnerable refugees to action sports centres for young people looking for a safe place to skate to residential and respite care centres for those with profound disabilities. Our co-workers are inspired by the organisations that we support and highly motivated to better equip these charities and social enterprises to help the disadvantaged, enrich lives and make our communities better places to live.
