Following the latest updates from the UK Government, England has moved into a third Coronavirus lockdown. We recognise the problems that some businesses in the tourism, hospitality and leisure industries will face, in not being allowed to open or operate fully under the latest restrictions. We are ready and waiting to continue our support to the self-employed in whatever sector you work in.
Here’s just some of the support you could access during this period.
If your business has been affected by the latest restrictions in Greater Manchester, EnterprisingYou is here to support you.
Whether you want to make your current business more resilient, reduce costs, diversify your service, or if you want to move into employed work but need additional skills to do that; whatever your needs, we’re here to help.
If you are a self-employed resident of Greater Manchester, aged 18+ and have personal total earnings of less than £27,000 p/a, please sign up to our fully-funded programme for FREE and receive support that is tailored to your needs.

What our clients say
I must say that since the end of March from when we went into lockdown I can't tell you how much I appreciate you being there to talk to you and giving me all the up to date Government information and advice. It has been such a stressful time but you have always been there for me and I really appreciate it.Wendy Rodes
I have had a fantastic coach behind me in the form of James who has been a fantastic sounding board and shared with me a wealth of knowledge and information on things to think about. Business, therefore, can continue during a pandemic we just need the right support in place to assist us.Tracy Boylin
