Council Business Team Steering Scheme To Success

A scheme to help unemployed people start their own business is proving a hit in the East Riding.

The New Enterprise Allowance (NEA) is part of the government's ‘back to work' programme targeted at those who have been unemployed and claiming Jobseekers' Allowance for more than six months and are considering self-employment.

The NEA in the East Riding involves intensive hands-on support and guidance from the council's business services team.

Adrian Shaw, business services manager, said: "The East Riding has achieved good results with the New Enterprise Allowance. Since the scheme was launched last August, we have helped more than 50 businesses to start up in the East Riding, guiding long-term unemployed people who have accessed the NEA into self-employment."

Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic development, tourism and rural issues, said: "It is excellent news that the NEA is doing so well in the East Riding. I congratulate all those who have taken the plunge and started a business through the NEA and also the council's business services team for their professional expertise in helping steer the scheme to such successful outcomes."

The National Enterprise Allowance scheme involves intensive mentoring from the council's business services team to help clients with all aspects of starting up and running a successful business. As part of the process, the team hold workshops to ensure that people are fully prepared for the task. Business advisers also work with clients for six months after they have started trading to help the fledgling business overcomes all the typical obstacles it will encounter.
