Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent
Business Loan Fund

We think differently about business funding…

We believe in local business.
We believe in you.

Have you been turned down for traditional business finance? If you don’t tick all the boxes with other lenders, we can help.

We’re BCRS Business Loans and we work in partnership with Staffordshire County Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council to deliver the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Business Loan Fund.

Because we’re a non-profit organisation, we can take a human approach to business finance. We base our decision on you and your business, not a computerised credit score.

So far, we’ve helped 400 businesses with £15 million of business loans across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Take your business to the next level with affordable, unsecured loans from £10,000 to £50,000.

Every business is different, so we start with you and your potential.
