Welcome to BEC

The Building Enterprising Communities programme has supported almost 300 people in the Central Bedfordshire area since June 2014, providing them with help and advice in order to progress into self-employment. 70 individuals have now successfully either started their own business or moved into paid employment as a result of the programme, and those who are not yet ready to progress have acknowledged the value of the workshops and 1-2-1 coaching which has been delivered.

The programme will no longer receive funding after Monday, August 31st 2015, but if you require support, advice or information regarding self-employment, please contact the organisations below:
