 Trainer Roy White the Social Enterprise Loan Fund – (TSELF)

Roy White is the Regional Director for the Social Enterprise Loan Fund in the North West before Roy became the Regional Director in 2003 he was manager of a community transport organisation who were a client of TSELF, Roy has direct experience of the difficulties faced by social enterprises trying to access loan finance.

Over the last five year Roy has helped many organisations across the region, from Carlisle to Crewe, to access over £2 million of loan finance.  He has also provided them with ongoing support during the period of their loans.  Roy says: “Social enterprises play a vital role in our communities and he is keen to see social enterprises in the North West thrive and prosper. The focus of our efforts is to help Social Enterprise grow in a responsible way so that they achieve long term sustainability, which is not only good for them and their employees, but also for the people they help.”

Through his work at TSELF Roy has identified were many small organisations fall down when looking for loans, financing, funding and capital investment.

Accessing finance to help develop a business can be challenging for many successful, well-established companies. For small enterprises it can often be nigh on impossible – and, with the credit crunch, things have got a whole lot tougher.

This master class will help participants understand what lenders and funders are looking for and will outline the requirements for

·      presenting a budget

·         developing a cash flow

·         presenting  your case

·         demonstrating key staff experience

·         track record

·         Due Diligence
