The Larkin Centre set up its Self-Employed Support Unit to help those interested in setting up a business or in becoming self-employed in Dublin’s Inner City: our service is open to all people and in particular to people who are long-term unemployed or who have been made redundant. We provide a Business Information, Appraisal and Pre-Enterprise Training Service for prospective Self-Employed / Business Start Ups. We are one of the designated channels though which people (who qualify) can transfer from their existing social welfare payment onto the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance (BTWEA) scheme.
Getting your business up and running can present a range of challenges for Start Ups, we understand this and our Training Programme is designed to be responsive to your individual needs. We can tailor our programme to cover subject matter that is relevant to meet your business requirements and obligations and ultimately help you to gain the practical skills and knowledge needed to develop and sustain your business.
