THE Prince’s Trust is making it it’s business to help the young people of Ellesmere Port.

They are being offered the chance to set up in business with the trust this April and May.

The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme looks at the realities of setting up on your own, with the option to apply to the trust for a low-interest loan and a local business mentor.

Open to unemployed young people aged between 18 and 30, the programme will give advice on writing a business plan, marketing, legal issues and tax, while also examining the employment opportunities available locally.

Programme executive, Heather Peers, the main representative in Ellesmere Port, said: “If there are young people out there who are unemployed and have a feasible business idea then we want to hear from them

“This is a great opportunity to get quality help for free and explore your entrepreneurial dreams.”

Heather will be running information sessions for the Enterprise Programme in Ellesmere Port throughout April and May. For more information, contact her on 0151 794 3197 or email
