About us – Finance to Innovate and Empower

Parity Trust is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a diverse range of secured loan products, which are available to assist existing home-owners as well as those looking to purchase a property for the first time.

We were established in 2000 to provide an alternative finance option to high street credit providers and have lent over £5million to individuals, businesses and community organisations. In 2010 we achieved regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for regulated mortgage activities.

In the past 10 years, we have offered over 650 secured home improvement loans enabling homeowners to invest in their properties. We are proud of our long-standing partnership with a number of local authorities, which enables us to offer affordable home improvement loans to clients, some of whom would struggle to access mainstream finance. This enables our clients to finance the adaptations, repairs and improvements required.

With the rising cost of living, house prices, shrinking savings pots and diminishing pensions, the need for affordable and flexible borrowing has never been greater, as a result, we have introduced innovative products which meet the needs of those under-served by the mortgage market.

Our lending activity serves to create lasting and sustainable change. The future is bright for Parity  as we look forward to developing our position of strength in today’s financial market.
