PLEASE VOTE FOR US! Really exciting news for us and Wolverhampton! We are down to the final 15 (from 195 entrants) in the RBS Inspiring Enterprise competition – large grants category. The competition has now gone to public vote so please, please vote for us – our project is called RAISE (Raising Aspirations, Inspiring Self Employment) project. Please also send this around your networks!!
If we win we are given funding to run a Wolverhampton Women Enterprise project supporting socially excluded Women to explore self-employment as a route to work. We will be able to take referrals from all across Wolverhampton.
The project will support Clients to overcome personal barriers and anxieties. We are being supported on this project by ‘The Haven’ in Wolverhampton and will provide additional support to their Clients. We will also be working with the Wolverhampton City Councils recently launched Womens Business Forum.
The funding will enable us to support and empower beneficiaries, increase their confidence and enable them to realise their potential and help them to explore self-employment as a route to work. They will secure a new pathway to becoming independent through the development of their own businesses. The project will help to improve financial health and reduce benefit dependency resulting in Client improved health and wellbeing. We will further support our Clients to promote their new businesses and introduce them to potential customers and partners and will give 20 new businesses a £250 start up grant.
PLEASE, PLEASE VOTE FOR US NOW – WE ARE THE ONLY WOLVERHAMPTON (AND BLACK COUNTRY) ORGANISATION TO BE SHORTLISTED SO PLEASE HELP US TO BRING THIS GRANT TO OUR AREA!!
