GRANTS are on offer to Barnsley young people who need funding to get a business idea off the ground.

Anyone aged between 14 and 24 could be eligible for up to £2,000 of funding to cover things like promotional materials and rent.

An event - called the 48-hour Business Start Up - will be held on Friday and Saturday, led by Fraser Doherty, the founder of SuperJam.

There will be a series of workshops offering advice and people who attend will have a logo designed for their business for free.

To book go here.

This is god news. Just hope the new small business,s look at thier surrounding area when starting up. There are now 4 nail/beauty/tan bars in Cudworth. Someones going to fold. Theres not enough work around of that sort in such a small village. Location can be key to success. Theres no point saturating an area with the same services. A new business will find it hard to grow if the clientelle isnt there. Saying that good luck to them all.

I agree it is good news but why only young people?

It's very good news but bittersweet. As a 26 year old desperately trying to start up a freelance group exercise business I desperately need funding for equipment but can't get any. My only crime is being born in 1987 :(

Can't see that happening octopus. You're asking a bit much there, that would cost thousands. Why not try hiring the studio room at Grimethorpe gym? They have steps,mats,etc. This way you can build up a following and test your market before getting loans to pay for your equipment. No one will give you so much money that will enable you to start from scratch.
