Scheme To Help Unemployed People In The East Riding
8:16am 5th July 2013
Unemployed people in Market Weighton and Pocklington are being given help to start their own business.
The New Enterprise Allowance Scheme has already, with the help of East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Business Services Team, started-up over 160 new businesses.
Councillor Jane Evison, cabinet portfolio holder for economy, investment and inequalities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: “The NEA scheme has proved really successful in the East Riding and, with the continued support of the council, these business ventures will continue to thrive.
“In spite of the current financial climate, there is a real appetite in the East Riding from businesses to grow, helping to create jobs and support the local economy.
“The council is committed to providing a robust economic response in our area and hopes to put the East Riding on the best possible footing through continued partnership work with other organisations and by applying for and accessing funding wherever possible.”
