A free workshop will be held in Campbelltown later this month to help residents with a disability who are looking to start a business or who have recently started one.

The Fundamentals of building a successful business workshop will be held by IgniteAbility in the Campbelltown Council staff training centre on Wednesday, February 28 from 11am.

The workshop aims to equip people living with disability, both physical and mental, their carers and family members with the skills to start or grow a business – any kind of business.

“The workshop is targeted towards supporting people with a disability to turn their idea into a real business with a little help,” says Mayor George Greiss.

“For those in our community exploring a new business idea or looking to discover self-employment, this is a great opportunity to start your journey,” he said.

Following the workshop, participants can access the SSI IgnitAbility program which provides free one-on-one support through mentoring, connections to other small businesses and resources to navigate the process of starting a business.
