Ever thought about being your own boss? Dreamed about turning your hobby or great idea into a business? Self-employment is an option many people do not consider when looking for work. Whether it’s a top-up to an existing job, or something to fit around other commitments, self-employment might be right for you.

Yes, the current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted a lot of businesses, but it’s also opened opportunities for others. Maybe you’ve got an idea to bring to life that could benefit people during this time.

Torus Foundation works with Enterprise Hub Phase 2, led by the Women’s Organisation, and our colleagues in New Leaf, to get you on the path of reaching your goals.

Enterprise Hub Phase 2 – is a project to help residents across the Liverpool City Region (LCR), tap into their business potential.
