Changing lives through entrepreneurship
Enterprise Exchange specialise in helping people with additional barriers become self employed or start a business to transform their lives. We have a wealth of experience – not just providing business support, but also helping to build the confidence and self esteem of our clients.
We are very aware that mainstream business support is either too expensive or not fit for purpose for our client group. Our business coaches and mentors understand the barriers that our clients face and use tried and tested techniques to help them overcome challenges.
We work with offenders, ex-offenders, people who are long term unemployed and others who have experienced barriers to starting their own business. We also run enterprise programs for young people, have a dedicated women’s business adviser and a unique management development program for corporate clients.
'My personal view is that the role of Enterprise Exchange in prison is vital and a catalyst to an effective rehabilitation that some prisoners need. Your role also enthuses them not to be dependent on someone else to provide them employment on release.' Albert Barnes, Chief Executive, UK Resettlement
