The bank where money means independence for Joe

Joe, 18, was preparing to move from education into the world of work. He wanted to get a job, but as a young man with disabilities, he needed training and support to get into mainstream employment. Opportunities that were hard to come by.

Our customer is a charity that runs one of the UK’s few remaining ‘supported factories’ – a social enterprise that gives vulnerable young adults both a place of work and a place to live during this tricky time of transition. A commercial loan was agreed so they could extend and improve their accommodation block, giving Joe and many others like him a vital step-up in life.
