Have your say

Over 50s in Lancashire can get support to set up their own business thanks to a new partnership featuring a Blackpool firm.

Social Enterprise Solutions (SES) and The Prince’s Initiative for Mature Enterprise (PRIME) are teaming up to help would-be mature entrepreneurs get going.

The two organisations will be delivering a series of workshops between August and October and the first event will be an introduction to self-employment workshop tomorrow held at Social Enterprise Solutions’ Enterprise Centre in Lytham Road.

The half-day workshop will be delivered by PRIME, a charity dedicated to supporting over 50s start businesses, and on the day attendees will be able to find out what is involved before setting up an enterprise and whether it is the right option for them.

PRIME will then deliver a second introduction workshop on August 28 and two more will be facilitated by SES to take place on September 10 and 17.

Tony Carr, managing director of SES, said: “In addition to the workshops and courses, SES will also be providing one-to-one support, as well as social enterprise training if required, with the support of qualified advisors.”
