Helping individuals discover their full potential.

The Northern Ireland (NI) Explore Enterprise Support Service is a new initiative delivered by CIDO in partnership with The Princes Trust NI which provides self-employment or employment support to economically inactive individuals across Northern Ireland.


This is a free service that provides an insight into starting a business or allows you to take the first steps to gaining employment.  You do not need to have a business idea to join.


The NI Explore Enterprise Support Service offers mentoring and training at a pace tailored to your needs and you have the opportunity to work towards achieving a level 2 qualification.
Our experienced Business Mentors will support participants through a range of activities including:
  • One-to-one tailored mentoring and guidance
  • Workshops and Level 2 training
  • Support from the wider ecosystem
To be eligible for this service you must be:
  • Aged 16 or over
  • Economically Inactive (those not in employment who have not been seeking work within the last 4 weeks and/or are unable to start work within the next 2 weeks)
This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
