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.
The RSA Transform programme has been crucial in supporting Greater London Mutual (GLM) move from concept to reality. The RSA has connected us to key stakeholders; brought Fellows with significant expertise on to our board; and a growing number of Fellows are registering to join our movement. Working with the RSA we will create a bank committed to driving a more inclusive growth in our economy.
