London Housing Fund

"We are pleased to have launched a £10 million fund to help transform empty homes into good quality low cost housing." - Daniel Wilson-Dodd, investment director

With support from the Greater London Authority, Big Issue Invest launched a £10 million Fund to finance the provision of new affordable housing in London.  We aim to invest the funds into community organisations, social enterprises, charities and smaller housing associations, helping them to create good quality affordable housing for Londoners to rent or part buy.

We will consider any proposal from the social sector which creates affordable housing. Exact terms will vary slightly with each proposition, but in practice, we will aim to offer a fixed interest rate. The finance may be used to purchase, build or refurbish properties and may also be used to pay for professional fees. We are particularly interested in projects that create apprenticeships and job opportunities for people in London.

If you would like to apply for investment of between £50,000 and £2 million to help create affordable housing in London, please fill out an investment enquiry application form below.
