Funding Opportunity for Local Organisations


The Royal Bank of Scotland Skills and Opportunities Fund is currently open to charities, social enterprises, community groups, state-funded schools and colleges.

the Fund was launched in 2015 as part of RBS' on-going commitment to making a difference in the communities it serves and the bank is set to give away £1m in the first of two rounds of funding in 2017. Applications will remain open until midday on Friday 24 February.

The Fund has already shared £5m in 4 rounds of funding, providing grants of up to £35k to not-for-profit organisations across the UK that help people achieve qualifications, find work or start a business. The Fund is expected to reach over 75,000 people by the end of 2017, helping to build better lives and stronger communities.
