Back To Work Enterprise Allowance


If so, why not make an appointment to talk to our Enterprise Officer about your business idea. 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.
