Welcome to Fredericks


Fredericks Foundation South East has been lending in the region for 12 years now covering Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire and Isle of Wight. We have a team of Client Managers whose job is to work with people to prepare their business plans ready to present to our lending panel. We have made well over 900 loans to people denied bank funding to start their own business so if you are having difficulty raising finance through conventional sources please go to our loans page for details of who we are, what we do and FAQ's. If you think we can help then follow the apply process. 

At our Head office in Lightwater, we have excellent systems and people to ensure we can help as many people as possible to realise their potential.

How Alex is helping herself by helping others

Being positive and making the changes happen.

Mahmoud initially approached a high street bank for a small loan of £3,179. His application was rejected with no reason given. His local Job Centre told him about Fredericks Wiltshire and Mahmoud applied directly.

After being made redundant in 2009, Peter worked on his business plan to set up as a licensed waste carrier for both commercial and domestic waste. He attended the Business Link workshops www.businesslink.gov.uk and worked with the Princes Trust, unfortunately they were unable to provide Peter with the start up capital required and so Peter became Fredericks Wiltshire's first client.
