Charity Bank proudly announces to target £500,000 in grants and loans over the next 12 months with the ambition of supporting 10 organisations from Leicester’s vibrant and dynamic charity sector.

Daniel Wilson-Dodd, Head of Social Investment Solutions, at Charity Bank, said, “We are committed to making a positive and lasting impact in Leicester by supporting the growth and sustainability of charities and social enterprises.”

Why Leicester?

“Charity Bank recognises Leicester as a vibrant and dynamic city, known for its diversity, youthful population, high startup density, and yet, pockets of significant deprivation exist. The commitment to invest in Leicester reflects Charity Bank’s belief in the city’s potential and its dedication to addressing the unique challenges faced by its communities.”

Supporting Underfunded Communities

“The £500,000 investment target aligns with Charity Bank’s strategic objective of actively engaging with underfunded communities. Leicester presents an opportunity to bridge the gap and foster financial inclusion in areas that need it most.”

Partnership with Leicester Social Economy Consortium

Charity Bank has developed a strong relationship with the Leicester Social Economy Consortium (LSEC), working with over 160 social enterprises and charities in the region. Through a series of presentations and workshops planned for 2024, Charity Bank aims to reach a diverse group of smaller social enterprises, contributing to the betterment of deprived areas in England including in Leicester.

David Brazier, LSEC Chief Executive, said, “This commitment from Charity Bank is a testament to their dedication to fostering positive change in Leicester. Together, we can amplify our efforts and address the pressing challenges faced by our communities.”
