Business/Social Enterprise Development

Carney's Community journey with young people aged 14 - 25 through Business Counselling and Mentoring into starting their own business.

Our model adapts to the young person’s learning style and situation to get the best possible outcome. We break down the meanings of ‘Enterprise’ and ‘Entrepreneurship’ into a practical understanding that they can then adopt. We aim to be as creative and unconventional as possible in our approach to make the business a success. We follow this three-stage process:

  1. An initial meeting explores what ‘starting your own business’ looks like and assesses the viability of the concept.
  2. The young person is assigned a business counsellor to journey with, receive guidance, support and training.
  3. One-to-one business counselling continues until the business is set up.
