SCRT will work to provide a range of services and products to its members and the wider third sector in Scotland: These include:

Pooling the financial resources of the Scottish third sector:  SCRT will encourage Scottish third sector organisations and personnel to become ‘social investors’ in their own sector and/or communities by making available ‘community reinvestment’ opportunities.  The capital raised from the ‘social investors’ will be used to provide lending to social enterprises and community enterprises, particularly micro, cheap, patient, unsecured and risk capital.

Growing the third sector’s financial knowledge-base:  SCRT will  seek to improve the financial capability of the sector by developing training opportunities, providing information to the sector and offering an objective overview of the range of financial products on offer to the third sector.
