Helping Social enterprise prosper
The Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme is a pioneering initiative, delivered through our partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs and the Big Lottery Fund.
Since the start of the partnership, we have supported 1,300 entrepreneurs to start and grow social business, creating 7,000 jobs and reaching 1.1m beneficiaries.
Applications for the programme are now open and taster sessions are taking place across the UK. For more information and to apply, please visit www.yourideastartshere.co.uk
By empowering entrepreneurs to start up and grow businesses which tackle some of the most difficult social issues within their communities, the partnership – which will support 2,350 social entrepreneurs by 2020 - helps deliver a key target within our Helping Britain Prosper Plan to support skills and training, helping people, businesses and communities across the UK.
