We understand that many social enterprises and charities struggle to access the finance they need to grow and achieve their social goals. Facilitated by the Community Investment Enterprise Facility (CIEF), we offer loans from £10,000 to £100,000 to social enterprises and charities in the West Midlands. 

CIEF was established by Big Society Capital, is managed by Social Investment Scotland and delivered on a local level by BCRS Business Loans.

In addition, we are delighted to be working with Sheffield Hallam University on a long-term research project to measure the impact of this fund and how it can benefit traditionally underserved areas.

The aims of this fund are very much aligned with BCRS Business Loans’ vision, which is to ensure that no viable organisation in the West Midlands goes unsupported.
