    HI @garethd38 welcome to the community.  There is some information here that might help about The New Enterprise Allowance which is a government scheme which helps people gain access to business advice and help with funding. This scheme offers a weekly allowance worth up to £1,274 and you can also get a low-cost loan to help you with initial start-up costs along with a mentor to help you develop your business. You must be aged 18 or over, have a business idea and get one of the following benefits:
    • Jobseeker’s Allowance (or your partner does)
    • Employment and Support Allowance (or your partner does)
    • Income Support, if you’re a lone parent or you’re sick
    • You may also be eligible if you get Universal Credit.
