Natwest Skills and Opportunities Fund – Round 2 – Voting Open!


At NatWest we want to help build better communities for everyone. To achieve that aim, we’re seeking projects that will enable people in disadvantaged communities 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.

The public vote is now open until midday Friday 10th November. This is your chance to help us make the biggest difference in your community.

In 2017 we’re making £2 million available across England and Wales through our Skills & Opportunities Fund. The regional boards (with the help of a public vote) will determine the destination of grants of up to £35,000. So, if you’re a not-for-profit organisation and have a project aimed at helping people to help themselves, in the areas of financial capability and enterprise, then keep an eye out for our next application window.

To get started, visit the link below to take a look at the shortlisted projects in your area. Then, once you’ve made a decision, click the vote button next to your chosen organisation. Remember, you can only vote for one organisation in your region so please choose carefully.
