Local Authority and social landlord tenants who have ever thought about starting their own business are being encouraged to attend a free course for support and information to get them started.
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils want to support social housing tenants who would either like to explore the possibility of starting up their own businesses, or would like some help and advice with their existing one, and have teamed up with Menta (the Suffolk Enterprise Agency) to offer specialised courses designed to help.
The courses, which will be a mixture of both group and one-to-one sessions, will provide essential information about the legal, tax and financial aspects of running a business, help with business planning, ways to avoid problems, managing cash flow plus a host of other information that is useful to know.
There will also be information on how you can access the further support that is currently available through Menta.
The courses will run in the morning of the 10 June and 17 June with follow up one-to-one sessions on the 25th June 2014 and will be held at the Mid Suffolk District Council offices in Needham Market.
Any idea, no matter how big or small can be possible if people can find the information and support that they need. We want to support Social Housing tenants who may have an idea that could soon flourish, if they have the confidence and skills behind them.
Menta are offering a really good support package and I would urge anyone who has had a thought about setting up their own business to come forward – they might be surprised at how much their idea can grow after giving just a few hours for this course.
To access the course or if you have any questions, please contact Clare Boniface, Communities Employment Enabling Officer, on 01449 724880Leave a comment
