New investment for UK social entrepreneurs
30 January 2012
The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and Lloyds Banking Group have joined forces to launch a pioneering new programme. Over the next five years, the Lloyds Banking Group Social Entrepreneurs programme will support 500 social entrepreneurs* across the UK, as they start-up and grow social and community enterprises.
Launching in April 2012, the scheme will see 100 social entrepreneurs each year receive comprehensive support from the SSE through its innovative learning programmes, as well as a grant ranging from between £4,000 and £25,000. A donation to the SSE from Lloyds Banking Group has made the programme possible.
