Do you work with unemployed people?

Committed to building Better Futures

Inspiring Enterprise helps unemployed people, students and people who are not earning in Hampshire and West Surrey to help them develop the ideas, confidence and skills they need to become self-employed or create a social enterprise.

Our key aims are to raise awareness about self-employment as an option and to help anyone who wants to give it a go to set up a sustainable enterprise.

This free support will be tailored to each individual but may include all or some of these activities:

- ‘Is it for me?’ sessions to explore what’s involved in becoming self-employed
- Workshops and training days on getting the basics right for anyone who wants to take it further
- Face-to-face meeting for individual advice and developing the ideas
- Mentoring to fine-tune your business plan
- Access to business finance advice
- Monthly clubs to network with other budding entrepreneurs
- 'Learn from others' sessions for inspiration.
