Funded courses for women considering the option of setting up a business
Our Sowing Club Archives provides an insight into the previous courses and workshops funded through the pre-start up course for women in Lancaster and Morecambe – The Sowing Club. These courses are funded and run for women who are deemed to be socially disadvantaged due to one or more of the following circumstances.
- In low paid work
- Unwaged or unemployed
- Living on benefits
- Lone parent
- Leaving domestic violence
- Leaving prison
Courses looked at building skillsets, what running a business entails and the support that’s available.
Women who complete one of our Sowing Club courses often feed into the start-up course for 12 months of taught input and support from other women running businesses, to make sure that their business has the best possible chance of growing.
*Please note that self employment is not about zero hour contracts, but learning to run a sustainable business that will enable you to come off benefits and contribute to the community’s economic growth.
Our Past Courses
The Sowing Club runs a variety of courses at different times of the year. These courses are currently closed and we hope to re-open some of them in the future.
