Igniting Business Ambitions project offers FREE one to one support, plus online workshops and business support sessions. The programme starts with a two hour appointment with Nicky Kent Business and Social Enterprise Advisor, followed by online group workshops and direct support during Nicky's Facebook Group 'Office Hours' . The duration of the programme may vary due to your individual circumstances, but will usually consists of approx 12 hours in total support, and/or until you're formally trading (making some money) - registered with HMRC, or your business is registered with the appropriate regulatory body, e.g. Companies House.
There will be homework to complete between support sessions and workshops, but don't worry you will get weekly support reviews with advisor Nicky Kent, who can help if you get stuck.
This is a great opportunity for you to have the business you always dreamed of.

Alternatively, we may be able to refer you to another "Building Better Opportunities" support organisations, better placed to help you get where you want to go.
