“Key Fund – they’re brilliant aren’t they? Without their investments over the years, we’d still be in the doldrums I think. Its not just about the financial investment its the support the Key Fund gives you. I’ve used them as mentors, even if we are not looking for money”

Tom Handley, Doncaster Refurnish, Doncaster

What we fund

Key Fund can support a range of activities, from restoring a derelict building to buying equipment or meeting start-up costs. If you’re an existing enterprise that needs to adapt and shift its focus or create a new service, we can help with immediate cash-flow problems or working capital until you’re on your feet.

From Derby to the borders of Scotland, we can provide investment of between £5,000 and £150,000 to support:

  • Working capital to pay for staff or overheads
  • Growth and development
  • Contributing to the purchase and renovating of buildings
