Ex-Service Personnel - Be the Boss

Today sees the launch of the Be the Boss campaign offering enterprise support to ex-service personnel.  The £5 million scheme will start on 1 April 2010 and will be delivered by the Royal British Legion.  The RBL will use the programme to add to the support they already provide to veterans to offer loans and grants to help with the cost of starting or growing a business.  Be the Boss provides for:

Information, advice and guidance - to raise awareness of the option of starting a business or becoming self employed, including signposting to existing help and support.

Loans and Grants – financial support to tackle challenges involved when starting a business and to assist viable business propositions to get off the ground. 

Mentoring – working with existing providers of mentoring support. 

Ex-service personnel, discharged since 7 October 2001, will be able to apply for a loan of up to £30,000 and grants of up to £7,500 through the scheme, which builds on the Royal British Legion’s “Civvy Street” website service.
