“... I had been thinking of setting up a business for some years.  Coming to the Club pushed me on to doing things about that.  It has opened up opportunities for me and it has made me think of lots of things and opportunities in very different ways to the ways I had thought of them before.  I had done some market research but now I am involved with the Club in practical community activity …. I really enjoy it. The Club is loose enough to allow space for exploring peoples’ ideas, with meetings far enough apart to fit in with my schedule. I like that it is always at the same venue”

“... I am married with 3 children and have previously owned a small cake business.  I heard about the Club when somebody came to the door to speak to me about it.  I was interested in what the guest speakers would say and hoped this would give me greater insight into starting my own business.  Coming to the Club has improved my confidence and has given me tools to start my own business as and when I wish to do so.  It has been a wonderful project and I am so happy to have been a part of it”

“... I joined the Club because I was interested in learning something new and meeting people who lived locally.   The Club has given me a much better idea about what it involves to start up a business. After attending the Club, it has made me feel that if I had a really great business idea then I would be able to make it happen”

“LUDEN is a European network that is focused on key transition issues. One such transition relates to the structural changes taking place in our economies. With Shared Enterprise CIC, it’s been great to find a service that is not only  tuned into the transitions that are taking place in our economy and the labour market, but combines that with high a quality professional input which engages, listens and supports the development and evaluation of projects and  policy interventions”

“... I came to the Club because I am at the age of not knowing which path to take.  I wanted to learn new things, find out about new opportunities, see what ideas other people had and so on. I knew I needed to move forward.  But having been a child minder for 10 years I was in effect out of the market and I did not even know what sort of questions to ask. The Club gave me exactly the boost and confidence I needed. Once the Club had started to open the door for me many other doors started to open.   What may seem like a little actually helped me a lot. I have found it useful for so many things, like getting up to date information about the market and getting some good modern ideas.

I really enjoyed coming along to the Club…. There was no pressure or push to achieve, we were allowed to approach things at our own pace and to express ourselves in our own ways... Maria (Club member)”
