The Enterprise programme helps some of the most disadvantaged young people explore self-employment as a route to turning their lives around. 

The South West Leadership Group was launched in October 2008 and membership of the group helps to build sustained funding streams for the Enterprise programme in order to help more young people on their entrepreneurial journey.

While investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs is undoubtedly the key benefit of this, group members also benefit from positive publicity, the opportunity to attend some really special member events and networking opportunities.
