At the Royal Bank of Scotland we wanted to help build better communities for everyone. To achieve that aim, we funded projects that enable people in disadvantaged communities to develop, create or access the skills and opportunities they need to build their financial capability skills or to start or develop a new business now or in the future.
Over the past four years we’ve provided nearly £1m of funding across Scotland through our Skills & Opportunities Fund and have helped 47 organisations. The Scottish board (with the help of a public vote) determines the destination of grants of up to £35,000. This is the last year of the fund so make sure to vote for your favourite organisation when the voting opens on 26 October.
