SIS is the leading social investor in Scotland. We support charities and social enterprises, including voluntary organisations, with loan funding. If you’re not sure if it’s right for your organisation, you can test the waters with a quick chat over the phone. There are no application forms to complete – it all starts with a conversation. And if we can’t help you with investment, we might be able to signpost you to more appropriate support.
Talking it through.
Once we’ve discussed the basics, send us what information you’ve got. One of our investment managers will then talk you through your plans; face-to-face in most cases. We can finance the purchase of assets or equipment, get you through timing or cash flow issues, help support a new enterprise or simply bridge some grant funding. We are flexible in our approach and try to fit a financial solution around your needs; one that suits your particular aspirations and is appropriate for your organisation.
With you all the way.
You can count on our continued support even after you’ve accessed the investment. We’re also there for you if things don’t quite go according to plan. There’s flexibility in what we provide so we’ll always try to help where we can. We can do that by bringing in additional business support or by raising your profile and promoting your work through our networks.
