Start Up Support

Taking the bold leap to start a business is exciting and daunting at the same time!

We know that women face additional barriers such as family and caring commitments, access to childcare, lack of confidence and experience.  That is why ‘Gender Specific Support’ is a key action in the Women’s Enterprise Framework and Action Plan.

WES recently worked with the Armed Forced Covenant Fund to unlock the business potential within the military spouses community.  Read more about the Business Creation Project at the dedicated website Start Up With WES.  

Hear from one of the participating spouses on her own experience of the project, in this short video clip filmed by Services Sound and Vision Corporation.
