The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs programme, which launched in 2012 in partnership with The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and BIG Lottery Fund, will enter its fifth year in 2017.

The programme aims to tackle a number of social issues including reducing social isolation, improving education and supporting vulnerable people whilst encouraging young people to become entrepreneurial.
The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs programme provides vital support for individuals who are using entrepreneurial approaches to tackle complex social problems.
