Support for Lewisham's young market entrepreneurs

Lewisham Council says:

The Council is running a scheme to train local young people – 17 to 24 year olds - in how to set up/run their own market stall - click here.

The closing date is 30 September, with interviews on 8 October. They’ll get training, £1000 contribution to business start-up costs and a free pitch at either Catford or Deptford market in the run-up to Christmas.

With youth unemployment the way it is it’s a great opportunity for local young people to get some free, sound business advice in an area that they may not have thought of necessarily before and a chance to set up their own business.
