Making a difference in London

From cat homes to coffee shops, we support thousands of charities and social enterprises across London to bring amazing projects to life. Take a look at some of their stories and how London charitable giving has improved the lives of many... 

Helping charities raise funds with CAF Donate

The Celia Hammond Animal Trust operates in London and the South East to help stray, abandoned and unwanted animals. They're hugely reliant on small regular donations and CAF Donate helps them easily collect these online.

Building development loans from CAF Bank

Originally built in the 1880s, Putney Church’s ageing and underused building was transformed, with the help of a CAF Bank loan of £1.2 million.

The project has helped the church to expand its community programmes that include promoting good mental health, a community café for people who feel isolated, a carers and toddlers group and events for young people.

Helping social organisations thrive with CAF Venturesome

Old Spike Roastery is a social enterprise based in Peckham that trains and employs homeless people across their coffee-roasting businesses. Through our social investment arm, CAF Venturesome, we loaned them the funds to grow their social impact.
