The Key fund has been instrumental in supporting the growth and development of our setting over the last 10 years
Carol Hill - Cawthorne Children's Centre
Without the Key Fund support, we'd be finished. They've handed us at least two 'get out of jail' cards. I can't praise them enough
Steve Palmer - Barnsley Community Build
Key Fund have secured £3 million from the European Regional Development Fund. We have matched a further £3million to create a fund of £6 million new monies for social enterprises in Yorkshire and the Humber. This is part of a consortium of Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs), which have secured a £9.95m contribution from the European Regional Development Fund to create a £19.95m fund to support small and medium sized businesses and social enterprises in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The other consortium members are:
- Bees Knees
- Business Enterprise Fund
- Goole Development Trust
- West Yorkshire Enterprise Agency
Funding is available to organisations and businesses that struggle to access finance because they are considered high risk by the mainstream banks. If you feel that your organisation can grow with support from Key Fund, please contact us and talk to the Development Team to see if Key Fund can be part of your story.
