Let’s Do Business have been shortlisted by NatWest bank for their 2017 Skills and Opportunities Fund.
The Let’s Do Business Group (South East) Limited, are an awarding-winning social enterprise, based in St Leonards-on-sea. The area has pockets of very high deprivation and relatively high unemployment, particularly among the young population. Our aim is to support the economic development of Hastings and the wider East Sussex area by helping new and budding entrepreneurs.
We are asking for you to support our Business Builder project – a project that comprises an innovative series of start-up workshops, mentoring support, online training and specialist advice for deprived communities.
The project aims to provide access to enterprise skills and learning opportunities to increase participants’ financial capability, and it will also offer a Level 2 qualification in setting up a business, in order to support them with this process.
Funding will allow us to cover the numerous delivery costs of the project, which as well as many others, include activities such as administration, marketing, recruitment, training and certification, plus the costs of employing trainers and hiring venues.
With your support, we believe that we can directly benefit over 120 people through this project.
