Engaging the public
Engagement with potential Oldham residents is done through a mix of social media marketing and referrals from organisations ranging from those:
a. Working with young people such as the Oldham College, Oldham Sixth Form College, University Campus Oldham, Mahdlo and the Princes Trust.
b. Those supporting people into employment and self-employment such as Get Oldham Working and local housing associations.
This is provided by The Prince’s Trust, the Business Growth Hub, Oldham Library’s Build a Business programme, GC Business Finance and The Oldham College. This provides a wraparound service of support which covers all ages and both pre and post business launch support.
Resourcing the management and administration of the project is supported by Oldham Council.
