"Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor"
miEnterprise is the UK's leading supported self-employment specialist.
It is a social enterprise that operates as a mutual marketing co-operative.
We set miEnterprise up because we know that there are a lot of people with learning disabilities and other disadvantages like mental ill health in the jobs market who would like to work. We also know that not very many people are working, and getting paid!
We also believe that lots of people can make or do things that other people would pay them for. But for lots of reasons that wasn’t happening. So we decided to see if we could do something about those reasons.
You can find out more about how on About miE.
Over the last few years the term micro-enterprise has been talked about quite a bit. Running a micro enterprise means being self-employed. We aim to make that as easy as possible.
A micro enterprise is a business but it can be as small as you want, or as big as you can make it!
The first miEnterprise is in Herefordshire.
We are now setting up more miEnterprises across the country.
We are linking them together through the internet so they and their members can work together.
We were part of the national Getting a Life & Jobs First programmes.
Maybe the best way of explaining what we do is through some of our member's stories?
