    My mate works for them and I asked if they could help with business...

    They have grants aswell as loans.

    They did have a grant for £500 but I think a new one is coming out which will be more then this one.

    Grant is what I ment , smurf gave me the idea about asking for a grant I thought it was worth a go I think it is going to cost me about £6000 to set him up so got to be worth a try

    Not too sure about over there mark, but over here there is a course for starting up a business, covers everything.. I got £200 cash just for marketing research ( phone calls etc ) but I bought flyers with it.. They don't need to know.. They will do your business plan etc and after you finish the course you can put in a loan grant from the princes trust..
