The Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme, in partnership with SSE, provides financial support, 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 was launched in April 2012.

The programme is based on the active participation of individuals developing and running practical projects in communities in the UK.
