Loans and Business Support
Please read this page carefully and then follow points 1 & 2 on the right hand side.
If your plan involves a training course, a franchise operation or debt collection, please telephone before completing your application.
Fredericks Foundation will consider you for a loan and business support if you can demonstrate that you have made a genuine application for funds to your bank or a mainstream lender – and that you have been turned down.
Your business can be at any stage: you may require money to start-up; capital to expand your business; or funds to bridge a gap. Whether you are a sole trader, in a partnership or have a limited company you may be eligible for a loan.
For start-up businesses we offer up to a maximum of £10,000, though our average loan is less than £5,000. For established businesses with a financial track record of at least 3 years the maximum loan is £20,000.

- Completing Application
Log in and start completion of your loan request. You can save & leave this at any time and come back to it later. We will send you regular reminders by email until your application is 100% complete and you have submitted for final assessment.
Fredericks Foundation does not charge for assessing applications. If your application is successful there may be a Lending Fee, depending under which scheme you might be funded from, to cover administration costs. If you are approached by a third party for a fee in connection with your loan application please let us know immediately.
