Social Investment Cymru is part of Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and provides a range of repayable finance to social enterprises in Wales.

We have been supporting social enterprises in Wales financially for the past 10 years, where they have been unable to secure funding through conventional banking channels. We invest in organisations that are expanding their income-generating activities through the delivery of new or expanded services and products. Traditional loan funding can be secured or unsecured and for up to £250,000 over periods of up to 25 years. They are all available to social businesses who aim to support their communities and tackle the key social issues in Wales

WCVA supports and represents the third sector in Wales by offering training and volunteering opportunities, advice and guidance as well as funding. WCVA and Social Investment Cymru want a future where the third sector and volunteering thrive across Wales, improving wellbeing for all.
