To address the impact of the pandemic on Black, Asian and Minority ethnic-led businesses, Islington Council has partnered with Action for Race Equality to deliver the Enterprise Support programme. This support forms one strand of Islington Council’s comprehensive Business Recovery Programme for the borough.
Business owners from Black, Asian, and Minority ethnic backgrounds face many challenges in keeping their businesses running and in strategically navigating the enterprise landscape in the UK. The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened these existing challenges, posing further risks to entrepreneurial growth for leaders from Black, Asian and Minority ethnic backgrounds.
Islington Council recognises these unique barriers and is working closely with Action for Race Equality to provide culturally tailored support for Black, Asian and Minority ethnic owned businesses in the borough.
The Programme is now closed to new applicants.
