Encouraging female led enterprise start-up in rurally disadvantaged areas

This paper highlights how a project in East Yorkshire has encouraged enterprise start-up amongst women in rurally disadvantaged areas

Year of Publication2008

This paper highlights how an action-based research project in East Yorkshire, England, has encouraged enterprise start-up amongst women in rurally disadvantaged areas. Many aspects of rural deprivation remain hidden. The application of volume statistics as a means of identifying areas of need continues to mask many of the difficulties faced by smaller, dispersed rural communities, such as health, housing, education and employment. Whilst some studies have begun to address the top tier of the more urgent issues, less is known about areas that are not so immediately apparent or urgent, but which could begin to provide solutions that could contribute towards regeneration, such as enterprise start- up.
