Who do we support?
We can provide you with support at any stage of your business. You may just be starting to think about a business idea and need to find out about the things you need to do to set up a business. Or you could have a well established business, but you are having difficulties and need some additional support because you are disabled or have a health condition. Either way, we can usually help you to resolve any difficulties you may be having with getting the information and support that you need to set up or keep your business going. We can also help if you are struggling at work because of an impairment and you are thinking about running a business from home, to see if this will be more suited to your individual circumstances.
Whatever your situation, if it is about work and you have an impairment, we can probably help! And if we are unable to give you an immediate answer, one of our advisors will research the topic and contact you or we will signpost you to an organisation that can provide the advice and information you need. So, if you need support, or you would like some more information about Work Helpline UK, please get in touch
We have produced a plain English Resource Guide called “Setting up in business? A Resource Guide for disabled people and their advisors” to support disabled people who want to set up in business. The Resource Guide Pack is available in a number of CD formats including standard, large print, audio, easy read and text only. It has also been used by business advisors within mainstream organisations to enhance the support they provide. Key issues covered in the pack include:
- Different types of business structure
- Where can I get mentoring support?
- Where can I get support with funding?
- Hints and Tips on keeping motivated
- Hints and Tips for meeting with a business advisor
- A word of advice when dealing with your tax
- Working from home.
We have also included stories from disabled entrepreneurs and their experiences of starting up in business. If you would like to know more, please visit the ADP site for more information and to place an order.
