Social Enterprise

How we can help you start your own business

Do you want to start your own business? If you’re currently unemployed, living in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, North Tyneside, or South Tyneside then we can help!

If you become a participant in our programme and have a desire to become self-employed, we offer advice whilst providing you with the tools to get off the ground.

Our team can help you turn your hobbies and talents into a means of generating income.

We’ve all got a hidden talent or hobby we enjoy, but maybe you’ve never thought about it as a possible business idea. Do you knit, paint, draw, or make cards to help you relax? How about dog walking or pet sitting, hairdressing, beauty, baking, or making clothes? You could turn these passions into an income.

Do you think those crafts or activities you see on social media could be you?

Our Social Enterprise Coordinator can help you explore this idea and work with you to carry out market research, identify training requirements, and even produce a business plan. Perhaps you’re interested in taking on a business venture but you’re looking for a team to work with? We can help put you in touch with the right people and get where you want to be.

Contact us today to enrol in the programme and ask your navigator for more information.

Our Social Enterprise

A social enterprise business is set up to make a greater impact on the world than just sole financial gain. Beyond this, although a social enterprise functions much like any other business, it makes its money in a socially responsible way. This does not necessarily mean the profits are fed back into a charity or the local community, but the income is invested back into the business to fuel its positive impact.

We have launched our own social enterprise in Tyne and Wear. Find out everything you need to know about NEST, Moving On Tyne & Wear’s social enterprise.
