The Key Fund for Social Enterprises and Charitable Organisations

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

The Key Fund can support social enterprises, charitable organisations, and asset locked businesses across the Midlands, from 1 person startups to 250 headcount enterprises. They provide both loans and grant packages to help community and social enterprises become sustainable and grow.

Their support and expertise can help you with that often-tricky balance between financial sustainability and impact.

Their dedicated investment team will work with you to identify the right type of funding for your needs, support you through the application process and provide dedicated aftercare to ensure you are equipped for the long haul.


  • if your business or social enterprise is based in Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire
  • the majority of your activities involve working with disadvantaged groups/individuals, for te benefit of deprived communities or within the cultural sector and
  • you sell (or aim to sell) products or services, then this might be an ideal funding option for your social enterprise.

The key Fund can provide investments from £5K to £300K.
