Outset Swindon, the organisation that helps people facing the biggest barriers to enterprise, is hosting an event to celebrate the creation of 200 new jobs in Swindon.
The Outset programme specialises in offering pre start-up and business start-up support for people such as the long-term unemployed, ethnic minority groups, women, under 25s and people with physical or mental disabilities.
The event will be hosted on Thursday 16 April at The Platform on Faringdon Road and the project’s funders and partners are being invited to meet with some of the new start-ups that have been created by the scheme. The event will include a light buffet lunch with refreshment provided by Outset clients LIttle Miss Cake Maker and Pamusha African Fusion.
