Genevieve Jolliffe from Ryde has joined the 2017/2018 cohort of the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme, in partnership with School for Social Entrepreneurs and jointly funded by Big Lottery Fund.
The year-long programme equips entrepreneurs with the skills to grow a social business to help solve some of the most pressing social issues within their communities. The entrepreneurs on the Start Up and Scale Up programmes each receive financial support (grants of up to £10,000), a comprehensive learning programme with School for Social Entrepreneurs and a Lloyds Banking Group business mentor.
Genevieve has a place on the Start Up Hampshire 2017 programme as the founder of SN Family Hub, a social enterprise which will provide a one stop centralized online space for parents/carers of special needs children and young adults.
The programme sits at the heart of Lloyds Banking Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan 2017 to help people, businesses and communities across the UK by supporting skills and training and will support 2,350 social entrepreneurs by 2020.
Paula Rogers, Head of Social Enterprise at Lloyds Banking Group said:
“We’re thrilled to welcome a new cohort of social entrepreneurs to the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme in partnership with School for Social Entrepreneurs and jointly funded by Big Lottery Fund. I look forward to seeing their ideas grow over the next year to create positive social change, as part of our commitment to help Britain prosper”.
Alastair Wilson, CEO of School for Social Entrepreneurs said:
“It’s fantastic to welcome another cohort of students this year and I look forward to seeing how they will shape their social enterprises with the support of the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme, in partnership with School for Social Entrepreneurs and jointly funded by Big Lottery Fund over the next year”.
