Beyond Housing has partnered with The Prince’s Trust Yorkshire and the Humber to offer a three-day interactive workshop to help young people start planning for business success.

People aged 18-30 can attend information sessions throughout January and early February to find out more and enroll onto the free Explore Enterprise course.

Colleagues will be on hand from 2pm-3pm on Tuesdays from 14 January to 4 February at the Beyond Housing office on Gladstone Road in Scarborough, to offer information about the course and explain how business skills training, funding opportunities and up to two years support from an experienced mentor can transform a business dream into a reality.

Alice Ingram of The Prince’s Trust said: “The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme has been running for most of the 43 years that The Prince’s Trust has been in existence. These brilliant three-day courses are entirely free, they’re fun, informative and are a great chance for young people to start thinking about self-employment and to meet other likeminded young people.”

Emma Grimes, Employability Manager at Beyond Housing, said: “If you’ve always dreamed of starting your own business but need some advice, there’s no time like the present – and the start of the new year is the perfect time!

“At Beyond Housing, we’re committed not just to providing quality homes for our customers but ensuring that our communities have every possible opportunity to thrive.

“If would-be entrepreneurs would like some free advice but are unable to attend the sessions, they can get in touch with us any time.”
