Start Up: Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme

Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme is a package of support for UK based social entrepreneurs.

Launched in April 2012, Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme provides both financial support (grants from between £4,000 – £15,000), access to a comprehensive learning programme and business mentoring scheme.  Over five years the programme, which is also supported by The Big Lottery Fund, will support almost 1,300 social entrepreneurs to Start and Scale innovative social organisations.

The programme is based on the active participation of individuals developing and running practical projects in communities in the UK.  It is openly recruited for once a year and brings together cohorts of up to 20 students on each programme. The aim of the programme is to develop social entrepreneur’s emotional resourcefulness, social impact, business and entrepreneurial skills and their networks.

To date over 1,000 individuals have been support via the programme.
