Welcome to Fredericks


Fredericks Wiltshire has got together with The Community Foundation for Wiltshire and Swindon www.wscf.org.uk to harness each other’s strengths. With the benefit of RGF funding The Community Foundation will use their fundraising expertise to generate capital for Fredericks to then lend to people within Wiltshire and Swindon so that they may start up or grow their businesses. Fredericks has a dedicated client manager based in Wiltshire.

Fredericks loans come as a package so along with the money there is also the opportunity to have an independent free business mentor to help the business be successful.

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. 

Equally, if you would like to be involved with us in Wiltshire, do let us know. We have a variety of opportunities for volunteers including serving on our Wiltshire Advisory Board, being a business mentor, being a member of our lending panel. To support this current initiative as an investor please contact the Community Foundation on 01380 729284. They will be happy to discuss any opportunity with you.

How Alex is helping herself by helping others

Being positive and making the changes happen.

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.
