What can our funds be used for?
The AHF provides loan funds to eligible charities and other not-for-profit organisations across the UK, either for the acquisition of a building, to provide working capital throughout a restoration project, to bridge further funding becoming available, or to kick start enterprising activities to secure the future sustainability of the organisation and the building.
The building must be of historic or architectural importance – it may be listed, in a conservation area, or may be of special significance to the community.
Our loans usually require some form of security, either a first legal charge or a repayment guarantee from a local authority. However, in certain circumstances we are able to offer loans where no security is available.
