Good news for those wanting to start up small businesses. Today the National Insurance Holiday for small business start ups in our region comes into effect. It might just make the difference for someone contemplating a start up. Another good policy from the coalition government. Help for the regions which most need it!
I spent some time today looking through and discussing plans for spending a very small budget in the Western Area (Yarm, Eaglescliffe, and part of Western Parishes wards) for helping people who want to get into jobs. Some taster sessions from Tees Achieve on such topics as computer skills, first aid, crafts and more are going to be offered alongside some work on helping people to manage their finances, find suitable housing and ensure that they have the right advice on tax and benefits. I hope we get a good take up when the plans are finalised.
