New £2.5m Skills & Opportunities Fund

New £2.5m Skills & Opportunities Fund
Royal Bank of Scotland


This week RBS announced  that a new £2.5m Skills & Opportunities Fund is open for applications until 12 noon on Friday 22 May.


Charities, social enterprises, community groups, state funded schools and colleges can apply to this new fund for grants of up to £35k. This funding is intended to support organisations that help people in disadvantaged communities develop, create or access the skills and opportunities they need to help themselves; skills that will enable them to get into work or start a business. We believe that helping people gain such skills and access opportunities to learn can help turn their lives around and build better communities for everyone; when we build stronger communities, we all grow.
