Funded courses for women considering the option of setting up a business
The Sowing Club provides funded, pre-start up courses for women in Lancaster and Morecambe who are deemed to be socially disadvantaged due to one or more of the following circumstances.
- In low paid work
- Living on benefits
- Lone parent
- Leaving domestic violence
- Leaving prison
We will deliver courses that are from 6 half days a week for any women who consider themselves socially disadvantaged and would like to consider the option of becoming self-employed.*
The courses will look at;
- your skills
- what it means to run a business
- available support
Women completing the course who are ready to start a business can then feed into the next start-up course for 12 months of taught input and support from other women running businesses, to make sure that your 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.
