Opportunity: Co-designing our Community Finance Resilience Fund

We’re looking for a consultant to lead a collaborative consultation and ‘co-design’ process for our new Community Finance Resilience Fund.

We’ve recently been allocated further dormant asset funding, including additional funds allocated for scaling and preserving the provision of affordable credit. Through our new £5m+ Community Finance Resilience Fund our intention is to provide grant and some investment funding for community finance lenders (credit unions, CDFIs) to support them and their borrowers through the cost of living crisis.

We are seeking a consultant to lead the consultation for this Fund – this is an exciting opportunity to work collaboratively and at pace on an important source of funding for lenders supporting customers in vulnerable financial circumstances.

The deadline for proposal submissions is 5:30pm on Friday 19 May 2023.
