Starting my own business

At Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing we recognise that many people want to start their own business, but aren’t quite sure how. We actively encourage people to start their own business, follow their dreams and become their own boss.

Our help cover all aspects of starting a business, including:

  • 1 to 1 support and mentoring
  • Creating a brand
  • Creating your business plan
  • Product or service development
  • Marketing
  • Sales and customer relations

We will help you develop the skills and knowledge to take the next step. We also provide on-going support for participants and access to grants of up to £300 to kick-start businesses.
