ART exists to boost enterprise and the regional economy, by helping to ensure that businesses can access the finance they need to flourish. Some of these businesses are social enterprises, meaning that ART is helping them to achieve their diverse social objectives.
Originally ART lent to enterprises based in inner city Birmingham. Over the years, with increased private and public sector support, ART has expanded to support the access to finance agenda across the wider West Midlands region, which includes the counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, the West Midlands and Worcestershire.
