Skills & Opportunities Fund – Round 1 2016


Apply today for a share of NatWest’s £2.5m community fund

You don’t need us to tell you what great work you do in your community; but we can tell you about a funding opportunity that could grant your organisation up to £35,000 to keep up that great work!

Last May, NatWest launched their Skills & Opportunities Fund – part of their ongoing commitment to making a difference in communities.

Since then, over 1,800 not-for-profit organisations in seven regions across the UK and Ireland have applied for funding. 90 of them have been successful and shared in £2.5 million to fund projects that help people access the skills and opportunities to enable them to get into work or to start a business, now or in the future.

We’d love it if you could join them this year, here’s how…

Just go to www.skillsandopportunitiesfund.natwest.com, where you can find out more about the Skills & Opportunities Fund, including updated regional funding priorities; application criteria and guidance, as well as details of the public voting process to help decide the winners.

So, if you’re a charity, social enterprise, community group or state-funded school or college based in the UK or Ireland, helping people in your community access the skills and opportunities to support themselves, why not visit the site to find out more and apply?

You have from 12 noon on Monday 1st February until 12 noon on Friday 19th February to submit your application – don’t forget to spread the word and help us build stronger communities together.
