St Goran CLT Ltd
Social projects (Social)
St Goran is a small coastal parish on the south coast of Cornwall. The Church Flats and School Rooms are long standing community assets providing low cost accommodation and a traditional community facility for the village and the surrounding area. Ownership was complicated and the building had fallen into a poor state of repair, but our funding enabled the community to acquire the whole, reconfigure and refurbish the existing accommodation to a high standard, create further much needed living accommodation and provide a modern, versatile community space. The 5 affordable rented flats are now fully occupied and owned by the community for the benefit of local people.
We intend to empower people and support the personal development of disadvantaged individuals, by financing businesses that address specific social objectives. Lending in this sector is to for and not-for-profit employment programmes, youth help centres and integration programmes, among others.
