Liverpool City Region Impact Fund – Wave 2

Christian.Stannard@sibgroup.org.uk,

The Liverpool City Region Impact Fund (LCRIF) provides repayable finance to charities and social enterprises in the Liverpool City Region (LCR) to help them to increase their economic and social impact.

The fund will make two waves of investment. Eight investments were made under wave one (2014-16) and we are now looking to make the second wave of investments from the returns on the first wave. Once wave two investments are repaid, the remaining funds will create a legacy for social enterprises in the North West.

The fund has c. £475,000 to invest by March 2020 and a further £153,000 to invest by May 2021. We are currently looking to make 2-3 investments.

The fund is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2007-13 programme and the SIB Foundation.
