In today’s tough financial climate, jobs are scarce, new jobs are scarcer and now even existing jobs are at risk. Government funding is largely being spent on direct employment initiatives, preparing people to search and pitch for non-existent jobs.
As a result, many people find themselves both financially and socially excluded, trapped in a cycle of poverty and deprivation.
We help people who are unemployed or economically inactive to create their own employment. We specialise in supporting people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those furthest away from the labour market.
The Outset programme proves that sustainable enterprise is achievable, even in the UK’s most deprived communities, inner cities, coastal towns and isolated rural areas. Using our award winning framework, we deliver outstanding returns on investment for our funders and life-changing benefits for our clients.
With our help, hundreds of people have already started running their own businesses, creating sustainable jobs for themselves and their communities. Twenty one percent of businesses started through Outset go on to create additional jobs within their first year of trading. As a result, benefit claims have been reduced, local economies are growing, gross value is added (GVA) and we’re making a positive impact on social and financial inclusion, supporting lasting community regeneration. Don’t take our word for it though – explore our website and see for yourself.
