Council has a wide range of support in place for business, regardless of size. 

If you're currently unemployed or want to develop your business skills, Council runs a pre-enterprise support programme in conjunction with our partners, the local Enterprise Agencies.  The Exploring Enterprise programme can be accessed through Roe Valley Enterprises or Causeway Enterprise Agency.  For more information, click the links to these organisations on the left of this page.

For those interested in starting their own business, Council is responsible for the delivery of the Regional Start Initiative – or Business Start programme – which is the first point of contact for anyone wanting to jump-start their inner entrepreneur.

If you're in an existing business, and want to expand, or even just address a barrier to your business' growth, the Alchemy programme is designed for you.  For more information about this free programme, and the opportunities it can offer, contact Louise Pollock on 028 7776 0311 or email

Council will also run special programmes aimed at developing sectors in tourism, agri-food, the digital economy and others – to ensure that you don't miss any of our programmes or events, sign up to our monthly business support ezine HERE.  Once you have subscribed, opting out of subscription can be done with a click. Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council will never pass your details to a third party outside of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
