As part of our Enterprise and Employment Programme we want to increase local employment opportunities and promote self-employment.

We believe that for many people who are looking for work in our area, starting their own business can be a real possibility if they are provided with the supports that they need.

This is why we offer a range of supports including advice, information, training and mentoring to help people progress from a business idea to becoming self-employed.

In recent years, demand for these supports has increased significantly.

  • In 2015, we assisted 546 people who were interested in starting their own business. Of these, 197 went on to become self-employed.
  • In 2015, we also provided 835 one-to-one follow up mentoring meetings to existing clients.
  • In 2014, we provided enterprise supports to 516 people. Of these 191 went on to set up their own business. We followed up with these clients in 2015 and were delighted to hear that 90 per cent are still self-employed one year later.
  • In 2013, we provided enterprise supports to 450 people. Of these 163 went on to set up their own business. We followed up with these clients in 2015 and were delighted to hear that 79 per cent are still self-employed two years later.
