LLOYDS Bank has launched a programme to support emerging social entrepreneurs in South Devon.
Forestry consultant Kenton Rogers (pictured), founder of Treeconomics, visited the Newton Abbot branch of Lloyds Bank to explain how the programme worked for him.
Kenton attends the Dartington School for Social Entrepreneurs. Dirk Rohwedder, head of the school, said: "Working in partnership with Lloyds Bank and Big Lottery Fund has enabled us to support some of the most dynamic and promising social enterprises across Devon. This year we're thrilled to be supporting more than 40 individuals with bright ideas for social change and look forward to seeing a new generation of start-ups apply for the 2014/15 programme."
In partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs, the Start-up Programme offers opportunities for entirely new ideas, while the Scale-Up Programme provides support for existing social enterprises looking to expand. Applications close on April 3 at 3pm.
