Possible sources of finance

From Bristol Student Housing Co-operative

Big Issue Foundation

University of Bristol

  • Apparently gave £100,000 to launchpad (minutes 2020-08-28)

Co-operative and Community Finance

Bristol and Bath Regional Capital

  • https://bab-rc.uk/
  • "We have met twice with BBRC who have supported us by putting us in contact with key local housing stakeholders and advice on grants we can apply for to help us set-up. They have also put themselves forward as a potential source of support if we need bigger pots of funding than what we could apply for from usual community grants." (business plan)

Triodos Bank

Ecology Building Society

Great Western Credit Union

  • https://greatwesterncu.org
  • We have an account with them
  • They don't advertise loans to companies / housing co-ops on their website, but might be worth contacting

Radical Routes

  • https://www.radicalroutes.org.uk/
  • A mutual-aid network of co-ops committed to working for radical social change
  • Provide loans to members, but it's probably hard for a student coop to become a member?

Screwfix Foundation

Lush Charity Pot
