Enterprising Young People (EDRF)

  • Are you a self starter?
  • Do you have a bright idea for a business or know someone who does?
  • Not sure how to get started?
  • Aged between 14 and 24?
  • Need help with start-up costs?
  • Live in Barnsley?

Then Enterprising Young People is here to help - and it's completely free!

Enterprising Young People has been launched to provide tailored help for young people who want to make a success of their business idea.

Five experienced business people are working across the borough to advise and help young entrepreneurs.

We can help you with forming your business idea and help in making it a reality. A lot of people think that you have to have a degree and have lots of money to start a business, which isn’t the case, if you have a product or a service that you can sell and there are people who want to buy it, then that is a business.


We are here to help you whether it is thinking about ways to sell your product or service, through to managing your money and making a profit.
