Dolphin's Den

by Thera Trust

If you have a unique talent or skill that you love practicing, you might like to try self-employment.

We run a project called Dolphins’ Den that can help you to set up your own business or community project.

Dolphins’ Den is made up of a series of fun workshops. Workshops run once a month for about a year. They help you to think about everything you need to set up your own business, such as who your customers are, selling, marketing and how to write a business plan.

Half way through these workshops, we match you with a mentor from your local business community. A mentor is someone who will support and encourage you to think about your business idea and how to make it happen. Your mentor will work with you on a one-to-one basis for 6 months.

At the end of a Dolphins’ Den project, we have a big celebration event, where you can show and tell people about what you have achieved
