Michelle was today invited by Rt Hon Chris Grayling, Minister for Employment, to attend a round table discussion focused on the New Enterprise Allowance (NEA). The purpose of the discussion was to evaluate the current progress and make suggestions for improvements / growth going forward.
The NEA is a new initiative aimed at helping those who wish to start a new business. The NEA offers a blend of mentoring, money and support, to help people start on their own.
