The New Enterprise Allowance (NEA) is a Government initiative aimed at helping benefit claimants to start their own business through financial help and the provision of tailored one to one support from experienced business mentors.

The NEA mentoring service is delivered across the 380 Local Authorities in the UK and is funded via a grant from DWP.

Doncaster Chamber is the nominated lead partner for the NEA mentoring service for the South Yorkshire area, working with SENTA and Barnsley/Rotherham Chamber of Commerce.

The latest Government figures show that South Yorkshire, led by the Doncaster Chamber team, is ranked 4th out of 36 districts for both its mentoring service and the number of business start-ups created and trading.

In addition to this, in April this year, the partnership started their 2000th NEA business, meaning that now over 2000 people in South Yorkshire have signed off benefits and are independently trading. The whole of the South Yorkshire district, led by the Doncaster Chamber, are consistently exceeding the number of business start-ups expected.

Vic Holbrey, Head of Business Support, Doncaster Chamber commented: ‘The Doncaster Chamber and our partners are proud to support local people into business through the NEA scheme - helping to empower people into setting up their own businesses is extremely rewarding and also has clear benefits for our local economy.

Through our expert support and professional service we are able to guide our customers every step of the way and see businesses develop from an initial idea to a fully functional business. ‘
