The Key Fund

Investment from £5k to up to £150k to community and social enterprises operating in the North of England and the Midlands (blended finance & standalone loans).

The Key Fund can support a range of activities, from restoring a derelict building to buying equipment or meeting start-up costs. If you’re an existing enterprise that needs to adapt and shift its focus or create a new service, the fund can provide immediate cash-flow problems or working capital until you’re on your feet.

From Derby to the borders of Scotland, the fund provides investment of between £5,000 and £150,000 to support:

  • Working capital to pay for staff or overheads
  • Growth and development
  • Contributing to the purchase and renovating of buildings
