As a community venture, you can make a big positive impact. But sometimes it’s difficult to get the finance you need to grow. We’re here to support social enterprises at every stage of the journey, from starting up to expanding your impact on the world.

NatWest has been the leading financial services supporter and champion of the UK community finance sector for over 20 years, and is the only bank in the UK to have set up a specialist fund to lend to community businesses that are unable to obtain funding from mainstream banks.

Our ambition is to enable social enterprises to make a positive impact in UK communities and increase the size and strength of this important sector of the UK economy.
