Are you planning to grow an organisation that helps people in need?

Are you running or starting up a project to create social or environmental impact?
Support is available from the Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme. Successful applicants take part in a learning programme, mentoring and meet a community of people who run social and environmental projects. Depending on the stage of the project, grants of up to £10,000 are available.
"We can help you at all stages: whether you have just an idea, you’re already up-and-running, or you’re ready to scale. We welcome people from all backgrounds, including ex-offenders. You don’t need any educational qualifications. There is no cost to you at any point."
