WCVA are offering emergency fast-track loans to voluntary sector organisations in Wales to help see them through the effects of coronavirus and recent flooding.

In response to this, Social Investment Cymru at WCVA is offering emergency fast-track loans to voluntary sector organisations in Wales to help see them through the worst of the effects.

At the same time, existing loan holders are being offered the option to defer payments for a time.

Emergency fast-track loans

Loans will be tailored to each applicant’s individual needs in terms of amount, term and repayment profile. They start with a blank piece of paper – what do you need? What best suits you in terms or repayments?

We recognise that speed of decision making and speed of availability of funds are paramount, so that organisations can react quickly as events unfold. We are therefore reducing the application process to its bare minimum. This will mean that the majority of organisations being approved will see money in their bank accounts within 7 days of submitting a completed application (subject to prompt signature of documentation)

Eligibility criteria are: –

  • Incorporated social enterprise or charity based in Wales
  • Demonstrable effect on cash flow from flooding or Coronavirus
  • Need to replace assets damaged in flooding

Money can be used for: –

  • Support for cash flow
  • Purchase of replacement assets
  • Bridging of receipt of insurance claims
