Self Employment Support

Delivered by Gateshead College

Have you ever considered working for yourself? Do you have an idea you want to turn into a business? Why not talk to our team of dedicated Business Advisors about your ideas and find out what help there is available to would-be entrepreneurs. 

We can help you through the process of setting up a business with free advice on finance, accommodation, regulation and all aspects of working for yourself; we also run regular ‘Enterprise for you’ information sessions to provide you with an overview of self-employment.

Gateshead Council, from time to time, delivers programmes to provide residents with more intensive support in setting up a business; this could help you develop your business plan, provide access to finance and mentors, plus ongoing support once you’ve set up.
