Santander 2013 Social Enterprise Development Awards

Santander's Social Enterprise Development Awards opened on 3 June with an increased number of prizes available this year for social enterprises in the South West of England seeking a financial boost to help them expand.

Santander SEDA
The scheme offers social enterprises based in the South West the opportunity to win funding and business support to help them grow and increase their social impact. The Awards feature three prize funds - £50,000, £20,000 and £10,000 - dependent on turnover for organisations working to improve social inclusion, support employment or create a greener environment.

Following the success of last year's programme the number of awards has been increased to enable a greater number of social enterprises to be supported in 2013.

To enter the competition, social enterprises should complete a short entry form downloadable from www.santanderseda.co.uk detailing how an award would be used to grow their business to benefit the community. The deadline for applications is 1 July 2013 and the winners will be announced in September 2013.
