Watford Community Housing Trust's event gives start-up business help for unemployed
A Watford housing trust has held an event to help unemployed people start their own businesses.
Watford Community Housing Trust hosted the Pop-Up Business School at the Harebreaks Community Hub, earlier this month as part of a scheme which aims to help 100 people find paid work by July 2015.
Attendees were offered advice to start working for themselves even if they’ve had no experience of running a business before.
Faye Elizabeth Weatherhead, a qualified home economist who attended, said: "I have learnt how branding my concept will help me to promote my idea.
"The Pop-Up Business School re-energised my thoughts and I have created a brand name, The Pop-Up Food Pantry, to market my community food initiative.
"The aim is to promote accessibility and availability of healthy perishable food in our local community, reaching out to those most in need, reducing food poverty and promoting better health and wellbeing.
"I have been truly inspired, I have a clearer strategy and can't wait to promote The Pop-Up Food Pantry to community organisations and groups in the Watford area."
