From the RBS website:
Helping people help themselves. Our Skills & Opportunities Fund is one of the many ways we’re contributing to the communities we live and work in. This year we’re committing £2.5m to fund projects in charities, social enterprises, community groups, state-funded schools and colleges across the UK and Ireland. Our focus for this funding is to support organisations that help people in disadvantaged communities develop, create or access the skills and opportunities they need to help themselves; skills that will enable them to get into work or start a business, now or in the future. We believe that helping people gain such skills and access opportunities to learn can help turn their lives around and build better communities for everyone; when we build stronger communities, we all grow.
Supporting local communities. We’ve split the country into seven regions, each with its own decision making board, in order to distribute our Skills & Opportunities Fund. Although all regions will be looking to fund projects that enable people to help themselves, each will have differing priorities recognising regional differences. Prior to applying for funding, it’s worth looking at your region’s priorities and making sure your application responds to them.
