Outset Norfolk Programme Review

Outset Norfolk was commissioned to provide enterprise support to under-represented groups in Norfolk, and is funded by Norfolk County Council and the East of England Development Agency’s ‘Investing in Communities’ initiative. The programme offers free support and guidance to people who are interested in exploring self-employment, via group information sessions, individual one-to-one meetings, a mentoring service and referrals to partner provision for further training. Substantial additional support has been leveraged through the Mentor Time Bank, which reached over 2100 hours, thanks to generous support from the Norfolk business community.

Outset Norfolk’s start-up coaching and mentoring programme has created a real impact in the county, which we are proud to evidence in this report. We’ve unleashed Norfolk’s appetite for entrepreneurship – exemplified by the 600+ people who sought our help to explore enterprise, and the creation of over 50 new jobs. Based on each having an approximate value of £20,0002 p.a. this equates to an estimated contribution of £1,080,000 for the Norfolk economy.
