CO-OP Foundation - Community Spaces Loan Fund
This fund offers interest-free loans for enterprising ideas to improve community spaces and build stronger communities. This could include venues such as parks and community centres that need regular income so they can continue to meet the needs of people who use them, love them, and rely on them for local services and social contact. Organisations must be thinking about growing their trading activities to generate more sustainable income.
The interest-free loans have no repayments for the first year, while your trading activities are developing. If you are based in a more deprived area, or your work mainly benefits more disadvantaged members of the community, they might also be able to offer some grant funding alongside a loan.
