Just Enterprise Training

Passion and commitment are the cornerstones to every successful enterprise but, despite the obvious desire, on its own a business will only go so far.

That’s where the Scottish Government funded Just Enterprise programme comes in.  By providing tailored business consultancy support free of charge to existing Third Sector organisations across Scotland we help them increase their trading income and become more enterprising and sustainable. Since the programme launched in 2011 our Business Support service has assisted in the growth of over 1,000 organisations located across the length and breadth of the country.
