Are you on a Social Welfare payment and living in the city?  If so you may be eligible for the short-term enterprise allowance scheme or the two year Back to Work Enterprise Allowance scheme.  This scheme enables you to keep your social welfare payment while running a business.  The Back to Work Enterprise Allowance is managed by GCP on behalf of the Department of Social Protection.  We also offer free ‘Start Your Own Business’ courses on a regular basis.
