Back when Tony Blair was in power the government had a scheme called back young Britain. The opticians that I used to own took on six young people and it really changed everything in a positive way I’d been used to taking on work experience students and apprentices but these guys were taken on on the premise that there would be wages covered for six months and that would help with my marketing and operations

the government knew scheme is called Kickstarter the one challenge is it’s really aimed at larger businesses because you need to apply for no less than 30 people so more motivation to get involved this time around was to help others to connect to the funds and the grant.

if you are a small business and would like to apply for the Kickstarter scheme make sure that you go through this checklist before applying

have you ever been bankrupt?

Do you have a County Court judgment against you

can you morally say that you will educate these young people so they are in a better position after six months to be more employable?

If the answer is yes then please send me an email at gary@lovingsocialmedia.com and I’ll help you to connect into the funds and answer any questions you may have
