Co-operative and Community Finance is a lender for social purpose lending to ethical businesses since 1973.
We exclusively serve the co-operative and social enterprise sector, and for over 40 years we have supported hundreds of businesses ranging from small community‑run enterprises to large award‑winning organisations.
We provide loan finance to a range of organisations and community businesses that are democratically controlled by their members - usually either employees, customers or members of a community.
Our finance is tailored to the needs of individual enterprises and is provided for a range of purposes, including purchasing a property, employee buyouts and working capital.
We support a range of sectors including Housing Co-operatives, Health & Social Care, Renewable Energy schemes, Sport & Leisure, and many more.
