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 £5 million to individuals, businesses and community organisations. In 2010, Parity Trust achieved regulations by the Finance Conduct Authority (FCA) for all of its mortgage activities. In the past 10 years, alone we have offered over 600 secured home improvement loans enabling householders to invest in their properties. We are particularly proud of our long-standing partnership with 14 local authority partners to offer affordable home improvement loans to clients, some of whom are unable to access mainstream finance. This enables our clients to finance the adaptations, repairs and improvements to their home that they need. With the rising cost of living, spiralling 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 not being provided by mainstream lenders, which address this unmet demand in the market place. Our lending activity serves to create lasting and sustainable change in the community. The future is bright for Parity as we look forward to developing our position of strength in today’s financial market.
