Applications open for social entrepreneurs

Have your say

PEOPLE who want to start a social enterprise and those already have, but need support, can take part in a learning programme.

The School for Social Entrepreneurs Hampshire has started recruiting for a 12-month Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs course.

The programme offers participants learning opportunities to develop key business skills, personal development, a £4,000 grant and a business mentor from Lloyd Bank.

Anyone interested in learning more can go to a taster lesson at Buckland United Reformed Church on February 1 at 2pm, or at Empress Heights in Southampton on January 25 at 2pm.

The course is designed so social entrepreneurs can learn while growing their business.

The course offers study sessions on all aspects of running a social enterprise, individual business mentors supplied by Lloyds Bank and a start-up grant funded by the Big Lottery.

People interested in learning more about the course can apply online at or send an e-mail to
