Successful Projects

We support individuals through various projects throughout Wales and have an excellent track record of working with both the UK and Welsh Governments, as well as Local Authorities. These are just some of the projects we have successfully delivered.

Enterprise Merthyr

Enterprise Merthyr was a two year Welsh Government pilot project starting in September 2019. The project supported individuals that were experiencing difficulties and facing barriers, helping them to think about an alternative route and to, learn about what was needed to make a business idea a success.

The project examined the demographics and key statistics for the Borough and supported efforts to address the socio-economic challenges.

The Enterprise Facilitator, Carmel Barry worked with:

  • Merthyr Enterprise Steering Board & Forum
  • Merthyr Economic Growth Forum including Town Centre Partnership
  • Job Centre +/Universal Credit & New Enterprise Allowance

This work is now embedded in the Merthyr community and continues to build on this work and importantly, the investment by Welsh Government.

  • 769 people – we engaged with
  • 157 people – we supported
  • 42 people – started a business

UK Community Renewal Fund

Business in Focus was proud to deliver  Focus Futures, a project that formed part of the UK Government’s Community Renewal Fund, on behalf of 13 Local Authorities. This project was developed to support local people to develop their skills and confidence in order to further their entrepreneurial goals, as well as support businesses that were struggling following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Focus Futures also provided fully-funded support to established independent businesses in Wales that had been through tough times during the pandemic, ensuring we helped to protect businesses and safeguard jobs in local communities.

This project was funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund.


Working in partnership with our Teams allows organisations to feel confident and assured of high quality delivery from a knowledgeable, highly skilled, committed group of people.
