Our social investment portfolio is developing a stronger enterprise culture within the third sector in Wales by providing access to loan finance that organisations would not be able to obtain from commercial lenders.

As a result, local economies are being strengthened, new jobs are being generated, and sustainable, community-centred services are being safeguarded and developed.

Finance through the Communities Investment Fund helped Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan develop a new digital cinema

 

 

Our social investment portfolio has been developed in partnership with Finance Wales, the Welsh Government and Unity Trust Bank. As a result, third sector organisations are able to access £1,000 through to £5 million in social finance through WCVA.
