Description

Enterprise programme is designed for people who are newly self-employed or are interested in starting their own business.

You will be designated a keyworker who will give one-to-one support throughout their Prince’s Trust journey. The keyworker will support you to create their Business Plan and bids for funding where needed.

In addition to one-to-one support, the Prince’s Trust has 8 online sessions made up of 4 core lecture-style sessions: The Basics of Self-Employment, Tax and HMRC, Sales and Pricing, and Marketing along with 4 more interactive breakout sessions during where you can discuss the topic from that week and ask questions.

Funding grants are available to test out your business idea including a Will it Work grant of £250 and a Start-up Grant of up to £1,000. The aim of the support is to support you to test out your business idea and have the knowledge and confidence to pursue this route.
