We offer loans to small and large organisations from £50,000 to £2.5 million, up to £3.25 million to housing associations and more in partnership with other lenders.
Savings: put your money where your values are
You can open a savings account that will earn you a fair return and support the extraordinary work of the charities and social enterprises that borrow from us.
Choose from our personal savings accounts, charity and business savings accounts, a children’s savings account and an ethical ISA.
