If you are in a position to have some spare savings that you would like to invest usefully and ethically, or you know someone who is, please consider investing in ‘Share Instead’. This is a long-established Sheffield housing co-operative working on eco-development. Part of the aim is to provide affordable rented accommodation.
They offer interest at the end of a 5-, 10-, 15- or 20-year period, around 2-3% pa. It is not a secured loan, but would be made safe by the community. With interest rates and property prices both rising, and no grants or subsidies available, they need support from friendly Loan Stock investors.
