We provide free grass root level pre self-employment support and associated training to disadvantaged adults (including single parents, unemployed and people with disabilities) who wish to explore the idea of creating their own job. We have 5 Trustees, 2 of which are Bolton residents. The main purpose of our charity is to help disadvantaged people make an informed choice about self-employment/starting a business. Since Jan 2015, we have run courses and given 1 to 1 assistance to residents of Bolton Borough and to residents of neighbouring local authority areas. We also run personal development related courses and health and well-being courses for our clients too, depending on what funding we have for each project. Normally, we work with Bolton based organisations such as housing providers/local charities for example, by using their community venues for our free training specifically for Bolton/Farnworth based residents. At the moment we are providing free online courses to Bolton Residents and telephone/email support and will continue to do so. We are also currently leading on a project which would involve buying a building within Bolton Borough and creating a real community asset, leading to new volunteering and job opportunities amongst other things.
