DLR Trust Fund

Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown (DLR) Trust Fund - Helping New Businesses Get Off the Ground!

What is the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Trust Fund?

The Trust Fund is a charitable body which makes loans available to individuals or groups  of individuals who wish to launch a new business but have had difficulty in accessing start-up finance from banks or government agencies.
 

The trust fund is specifically targeted at those people who are experiencing some form of disadvantage or a particular challenge. This might include, for example, a person with a disability, a member of a minority ethnic group or someone who has been unemployed for a period of time.
 

What's available?

The Trust Fund makes loans of €500 to €5,000, repayable over a period of one to three years. The loans are interest free, but an administraiton charge is applied to each loan. No security is required. The funds can be used towards any legitimate business expense, including working capital (the general cash rquired to operate your business especially in the first few months).


Who can Apply?

Applications are open to any individual or groups of individuals with a business idea which has been well researched and shaped into an outline business plan. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that:-

  • They have already been refused funding from banks or state agencies

               and

  • They are experiencing some form of disadvantage or challenge (e.g. disability, unemployment)
