What is The Wrexham Enterprise Initiative?
The Wrexham Enterprise Initiative is a 2-year programme delivered by AVOW and Neighbourhood Economics on behalf of the Welsh Government.
What are the Aims?
The project aims to find new ways of working in communities. They do this by promoting entrepreneurship and self-employment. In addition, the project will enable communities to respond to local needs through Social Enterprises.
In order to do this effectively, we are also working closely with other local partners who provide business support, education and training.
What Support is Available?
