Help to start new business in South Yorkshire

Have your say

SUPPORT and guidance is being given to those who are looking to start up their own businesses.

Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce are offering free advice to entrepreneurs through the Regional Enterprise programme.

Gary Dunne, the chamber’s programme manager, said: “Everyone thinks about going self-employed at some stage. If you have the drive to do it and the support from family, that’s 95 per cent of the battle.”

Entrepreneurs will be given advice on starting-up their business right through to its development and growth, and can be mentored by other successful business owners from the region.
