Our business start-up programme.

Our most popular business start-up programme includes 12-months of tailored 1:1 support from a Business Start-Up Advisor. No two journeys look the same as every participant has such a different idea of what self-employment looks like to them.

See below for an example as to what our participants can expect to receive.
