PeoplePlus Enterprise offers a range of different services for business startups. Our main service areas support the unemployed or parents on a low income, to provide them with business startup advice, help with business ideas and practical advice such as how to write a business plan.

Whichever programme you decide to engage with, you will have access to your own personal business adviser to help you develop your business idea and to give you insight into areas such as accessing a business startup loan to help fund your business.
