The CSBA aims to create a UK-wide network of customer-owned, regional banks that will serve the everyday financial needs of ordinary people, local community groups, and small and medium sized companies.
HOW DOES TRANSFORM WORK
- We work closely with Fellows so we can have the biggest impact. This means we can only work with a small number of projects at any time.
- We are currently supporting one project and you can let us know about a potential Transform project by submitting an enquiry form online.
- All enquiries we receive are reviewed by staff and a panel of elected Fellowship Councillors.
To be considered for our transform programme your project will need to demonstrate that it meets all the criteria and has the potential to achieve significant measurable social impact and to become sustainable.
Before enquiring, please ensure you have read the criteria. We are not taking on any new projects at the moment, but we always want to hear about initiatives we could work with in the future.
Our partnership with the RSA has been invaluable. It has helped us open doors with central and local government, mine their influential Fellowship networks for key contacts, and promote this work to a wide audience. We are excited to be continuing this journey with the RSA and working with them to realise our vision of re-building regional banking in the UK.
