We support and invest directly in education, employability and enterprise in our communities, because we know that when they thrive, we do too.
We focus our community investment on more than just financial support. Since 2003 we have changed the lives of 70,000 young people through the Midnight League, run in partnership with the SFA. Our colleagues have completed over 1m paid volunteering hours since 2013 and by 2017 we'll have supported 1,300 entrepreneurs through the School for Social Entrepreneurs programmes.
We're proud to be the first ever principal partner of BBC Children in Need and at Bank of Scotland we share the same goal of supporting communities across Scotland.
The Bank of Scotland Social Entrepreneurs Programme is specially designed to help community-minded entrepreneurs build a network of knowledge and support. Successful entrepreneurs will receive a support package including a £4,000 grant, a series of interactive learning modules and a Bank of Scotland mentor for 12 months. We’ll help you make an impact in your community.
