Second Floor Studios & Arts (SFSA) has been offering affordable creative studios in London for more than 20 years. The social enterprise rented several buildings, but knew it needed to move to ownership to secure its long-term future.
Find out how a £2.7m loan is helping Second Floor Studios & Arts to restabilise the affordable artist studio sector through its acquisition of 30,000 sq. ft. on a 250-year leasehold giving 110 artists and other creative businesses the space to create.
Transforming Lives for Good operate 11 education centres that give young people a second chance for an education, and 39 early intervention centres across the UK that provide extra support to children at school at a crucial period of their personal development
YMCA Thames Gateway has taken a different approach to affordable housing. The charity’s 39 new flats were built off-site, saving time, money and disruption. The scheme attracted a grant, which together with Charity Bank’s loan enabled the project to go ahead.
Your eligible deposits with Charity Bank are currently protected up to a maximum of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), the UK's deposit guarantee scheme. Total balances above £85,000 are not protected.
For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000).
Deposits from large companies and small local authorities are covered by the FSCS deposit protection from 30 January 2017 up to a maximum of £85,000.
