Trade Up programme for South Bristol from the SSE inc matching grant

Just a quick heads up that we are recruiting for Lloyds Bank Trade Up programme in Bristol. Applications are open until 30th April and the programme will start in October 2020. It is aimed at small and early stage social enterprises, community businesses, charities and other VCSE organisations, who are looking for support with recovery from the Covid-19 crisis, wish to make their enterprises more resilient and are looking to grow or build back their trading income and potential.

We are keen for this programme to be delivered as part of our delivery activities under the SBES project and are specifically looking for enterprises from South Bristol to make use of the opportunity and apply to the programme. Participants will receive a match trading grant of up to £4,000, a free action learning programme and mentoring from our Lloyds Bank partners.

I would be grateful if you could circulate this opportunity as widely as possible and specifically to individuals and organisations in South Bristol, who might be interested in the opportunity or have people and organisations in their networks, who might be interested.
