Enterprise First – solutions for business
Need help with writing a business plan, securing funding, scaling up or just want a bit of advice?
Finding solutions is at the heart of what we do. Our experienced adviser team work with you on a one on one basis to offer a bespoke package of support.
The NEA (New Enterprise Allowance) Scheme is a Jobcentre Plus funded programme to help unemployed people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance to start their own business or to become self-employed.
You MUST be referred to see one of our team by a Jobcentre Plus adviser, so if you live in Hampshire and believe you are eligible then please ask to be referred by your JCP Adviser.
If you are successful in being put forward on the scheme, a mentor will be provided to assist you with the production of your Business Plan and Cash Flow. Both of these elements are a requirement of the scheme.
