Director of AccuSafe, I am a qualified and experienced Health & Safety professional offering consultancy and training services to businesses across the UK. An array of new products and services are ready to be launched and I now need to scale the business which means growing my team. Exciting times!
Based in Blackpool, a deprived seaside town in Lancashire, my aim is to provide paid employment and training opportunities to those who are currently unemployed and to provide value to the local economy. By growing the team the business will be in a position to provide initial free help and advice to new start up and established businesses, in turn assisting them in implementing their obligations to provide a safe workplace for their staff, ensuring employees go home safely to their families each day.
I am looking to raise £20,000 to secure an initial lease on office premises, to launch a new e-commerce website to accommodate the new products and services, to secure dominance in the sector on selected social media platforms and to onboard, purchase tech (for the new starters) and train the 5 new employees. All items have been carefully priced to ensure the budget fits with the plan.
Office premises have been selected based on the opportunities provided and include adequate space to allow local start ups to use the facilities to meet with clients, undertake their work and to utilise a business address for their branding.
Blackpool is currently undergoing regeneration and therefore the potential for increased numbers of start up businesses is promising.
