Lloyds Bank encourages entrepreneurs to start a social enterprise

Monday, January 20, 2014

Lloyds Bank has partnered with the School for Social Entrepreneurs to re-launch its social initiative offering entrepreneurs funding and mentoring in order to start and develop a charity.

The year-long programme, which is running for its second time this year , is designed to support the growth of social enterprises in communities and will give entrepreneurs access to “practical, facilitated learning” and financial grants from £4,000 to £15,000, depending on whether it is a new idea or scaling an existing social enterprise.

To showcase the opportunities on offer within the scheme, taster sessions will be running during February and March in 12 locations across the country including Bristol, London, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
