The programme launches in January in resettlement centres across the UK and is available for booking here.

The workshop will provide an introduction to all aspects of starting your own business, and help you to discover the key segments of running a business and plan your next steps.

  • An understanding of the personal and professional requirements of starting your own business
  • Understanding your survival budget and how this fits into financial planning

"The workshop I am glad to say fully met my objectives for the day, and more so gave me a very good look at what else I need to do to assure success when considering all my options. It has inspired me to work harder on my goal of running my own business and has given me the additional confidence boost I needed to allow me to truly believe that I can make a success of this."
