Promoting Entrepreneurship in Less Advantaged Communities (PELAC) Project
AVOW has been awarded a contract on behalf of the Welsh Government to deliver a research project in Wrexham, which aims to find new ways of working in communities to promote entrepreneurship and self-employment. In the process we will help in exploring aspirations for change at both the personal and community level which might translate into workable business
Working with Neighbourhood Economics as our project partner we shall be offering pre-start up support, helping local residents to pursue their ambitions, earn cash from their hobbies and supporting them to take forward their ideas. In order to do this effectively we will also be working closely with other local partners who provide business support, education and training.
Our work will be focussed in 3 community areas within Wrexham County Borough:
- Caia Park / Hightown;
- The ‘Northern’ urban villages including Brymbo/Broughton/Gwersyllt and Llay; and
- Plas Madoc.
In addition, we will be delivering a pilot project with HMP Berwyn to provide support to offenders approaching release within the Wrexham/North Wales area.
The project, which started in April 2019, will run for 2 years. For more information email email@example.com or phone John on 07899 916242, or Judi on 07985 294528
