Research into charity borrowing

A new research report in Northern Rock Foundation’s Third Sector Trends Study is ‘An assessment of the willingness of organisations to borrow money in the Third Sector: Findings from studies in Yorkshire, North East England and Cumbria’.

The research was undertaken by St Chards College, at Durham University. It looks at the level of demand for different types of loans by third sector organisations in the area, the the characteristics of those most likely to borrow, and for what purposes.
