Hampshire School for Social Entrepreneurs

Hampshire School for Social Entrepreneurs provides an exciting and challenging programme that brings together people who want to make a difference through enterprise. It’s practical, rather than academic – all that’s required is a good idea and the drive and commitment to make it happen!

Budding social entrepreneurs can soon apply for a place on the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme which is available at the Hampshire School for Social Entrepreneurs. Recruits with entrepreneurial flair from communities across the region who are interested in starting or scaling a social enterprise can apply online at www.the-sse.org/lloyds

Successful applicants will receive comprehensive learning at the school and a financial contribution starting at £4,000 upwards to £25,000 to fund their organisation. To further increase the success of their enterprise, the students will also receive a senior mentor from Lloyds Bank during their time on the course.

There is a series of Taster Information Sessions to help you find out more about the programme and applying:
