The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme is an enduring partnership that will deliver a long lasting legacy to communities.
The School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) is a charity that supports people using entrepreneurial approaches to tackle complex social problems. SSE invests in individuals from all backgrounds who
have practical ideas for change and supports people to start, sustain, and scale social enterprises, charities and community projects. We run learning programmes and courses, provide advice and support, give grants, build partnerships, and share our evidence and insights.
Our vision is of a fair and equal society where the potential of all people is fully realised.
Our mission is to mobilise the experience of enterprising people from all backgrounds and support them to use entrepreneurial approaches to create lasting social and environmental change.
