I have recently been contacted by RBS about a funding opportunity for my constituents in North Wales. This opportunity and its aims and objectives I wholeheartedly support and I congratulate RBS on such a great initiative.

Round 2 of the hugely successful RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund is now open and is available to charities, social enterprises, community groups, state-funded schools and colleges based in our constituency.

£2.5 million is available to help people get work or set up a business.

RBS launched the fund in May last year as part of their on-going commitment to making a difference in the communities they serve and so far £1.25 million has been awarded to people in the UK and Ireland.
