The New Enterprise Allowance is a grant to help anyone on Jobseeker’s Allowance start or develop a new business venture. Once you’ve presented a business plan and it has been accepted, the New Enterprise Allowance can help support you and the business financially until it is off the ground.

The New Enterprise Allowance also offers mentorship to get you up and running and start trading. You will be assigned a mentor who will oversee and advise all aspects of your business, showing you where best to use the funding from the New Enterprise Allowance and giving you the best chance at success.
