Welcome to SPIN Hawkesbury!
SPIN Hawkesbury was founded in 2016 with the aim of providing support to those in need, based in the Hawkesbury, through no interest loans (NILS), scholarships, grants and professional services. Our point of difference is that we support people by allocating some of our funding to supporting businesses to provide a stable and forward focused community.
The No Interest Loan Scheme offers people on low incomes safe, fair and affordable loans for fridges, washing machines and furniture, as well as education and medical expenses. NILS also provides a safe and affordable alternative to the high cost finance options such as payday loans or ‘rent to buy’, products which promise ‘fast cash’ but often compound a person’s financial situation.
We are proud to be associated with and have a strategic partnership with Hills Community Aid. HCA will support our clients with NILS loans.
SPIN will also have a grant and scholarship facility, and applications will be assessed from July to September annually.
We also plan to partner with other community organisations in the Hawkesbury, with the aim of providing support to those who are disadvantaged within our community.
