The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme, in partnership with School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE), and jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund, is open for applications. Peter Dowd MP is encouraging local entrepreneurs starting and running organisations creating social and environmental impact across Bootle to join the award-winning programme.
The Programme provides social entrepreneurs who are tackling some of the most difficult social issues within their communities with financial support (grants of up to £10,000), a comprehensive learning programme with School for Social Entrepreneurs and a dedicated business mentor from Lloyds Banking Group to start and grow their own businesses.
By empowering entrepreneurs to start up and grow businesses, Lloyds Banking Group is delivering on its ambition to help Britain prosper and accelerate positive economic and social development across the UK.
Peter Dowd, MP for Bootle, said “Social enterprise is a growing and exciting sector for Bootle and it is fantastic that the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme, in partnership with School for Social Entrepreneurs, is providing support for local people to start up and develop their own social businesses”.
