RBS has a strong heritage in social finance – its independent charity, RBS Social & Community Capital was established over 15 years ago. Through its flagship Community Business Loan, RBS makes loans from £30k to £750k available to social enterprises who might have otherwise been shut out of the mainstream lending market. RBS Inspiring Enterprise has funded over 4,500 social enterprises since January 2013. A networking event with drinks and canapés will follow the seminar, offered by the sponsor.
