“Alex has a sharp mind that is equally comfortable formulating strategy or focusing on small detail.”

Mark Parsons, Head of Community Finance & Social Enterprise, NatWest & RBS

NatWest - Enterprise & Community Finance Team

NatWest aims to make a positive social impact in the communities where we work. That's why we have a specialist Enterprise and Community Finance team, in place since 1998.

The purpose of the team is to provide support to businesses set up to tackle important social issues. We do this through offering financial and business support to social enterprises, and by creating partnerships that actively grow and promote the social enterprise sector.

Our financial offer is achieved through the bank's own arms-length social lender, NatWest Social & Community Capital, which provides finance to social enterprises that cannot access mainstream banks.

Alongside this we develop and manage a range of partnerships and initiatives to encourage an increasingly thriving, growing and connected not for profit and social enterprise sector.
