CAF Venturesome

AFFORDABLE FINANCE TO HELP YOU THRIVE

We provide affordable financial support to charities, and social enterprise funding when other lenders may be unable to help.

At CAF Venturesome we understand the financial challenges that social organisations face - from waiting for a grant to come through, to having the money to grow.
