Why the Junction Box?
Founder of the Junction Box Ann Johnson says 'I have been lucky as many of my family are self-employed and can offer guidance but it can still be a lonely and difficult place sometimes, I want the Junction Box to tackle these issues and to consider low financial risk, to encourage positive mental health and to provide a place to meet when you need to chat.
We offer you support through the whole business process. You will be supported not just by our staff team and volunteers but by other like-minded people on the programme

Making a difference in the community
The Junction Box programme assists anyone at a Junction in their life and maybe wondering if self-employment might be an option.
We help people understand how to develop a skill, an idea, interest, experience or hobby into a small business.
We offer an 6 week peer2peer workshop programme followed by ongoing meet-ups. This approach helps provide an education, start-up support and ongoing assistance when up and running
The Junction Box welcomes everyone onto our programmes. We especially welcome and seek to further support those who face wider social challenges to employment which might include: Carers, veterans, single parents, people with disabilities, mental health challenges, learning disabilites, ex offenders, ex addicts - the list goes on. Self-employment is growing in the UK at Junction Box we believe that everyone deserves to understand if it might suit them.
