Business start up

Got a great idea? Want to work for yourself?

Could you start a business or social enterprise with a grant of up to £500?

If the answer is yes, please contact us now as we would love to help you with your business ideas .

Working for yourself can be challenging but many people find that the benefits are endless; including the chance to use existing skills or personal interests, having financial independence, enjoying flexible working hours and meeting new people.

By joining our free self-employment start-up Programme, you will benefit from attending four interactive workshops and receiving one to one advice and support for 12 months while we help you turn your ideas, skills or expertise into a business or social enterprise.

Workshops are held at our training centre in Eccles and your local neighbourhood office. Please contact us for dates and times.
