Abstract

The Enterprise Promotion Fund (EPF), introduced in 2003, was designed to test out innovative approaches to raising awareness of enterprise within the UK population and to encourage people to develop skills relevant to enterprise. It was also aimed at affording opportunities for new projects targeting sectors of the population receiving little or no attention from existing promotion activities. Main social groups targeted were: school children & young people; women; older people; ethnic minorities; homeless & other excluded people. The research involved reviewing the experience of 18 diverse EPF projects across the country, with 11 of these being examined in greater depth using face-to-face interviews with project managers and stakeholders and focus groups with project participants in order to identify the lessons learned and the wider potential of project ideas. Case study research on EPF projects revealed aspects of good and effective practice.
