About the Recovery Loan Fund

The Recovery Loan Fund supports organisations that are improving people’s lives, or the environment they live in.

The Ubele Initiative’s partnership with the Social Investment Business (SIB) and Access – the Foundation for Social Investment is making loans more accessible for charities and social enterprises led by people from Black and Minoritised Ethnic (BAME) communities.

In addition to a loan, BAME led organisations accessing the Recovery loan Fund will receive:

  • Personalised support to apply to the Recovery Loan Fund
  • Unrestricted grants of up to 100% of the loan value (capped at £200k)
  • Bespoke business support once finance has been secured

To be eligible to apply for the Recovery Loan Fund and receive additional support, organisations must meet the following criteria:

  • Charity or social enterprise
  • At least 51% of Board and Senior Leadership Team from BAME communities
  • Above £200k turnover
  • Applying for a loan of between £50k and £1.5m
  • Operating for more than 2 years
  • Operating in England
