Affordable finance for 'social businesses' with interest and tax relief for investors.
Community Chest arranges loans that attract 30% tax relief for investors through Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR).
We are the only people who specialise in supporting social businesses using peer to peer lending.
Why are we different?

This type of finance has distinct advantages for both borrower and lender:
