Inspiring Women in Enterprise


We are proud to announce that we have reached the shortlist stage of the RBS Inspiring Women in Enterprise fund. Now we need YOUR HELP by voting for our project and making sure we get the funds we need to continue our invaluable work with disadvantaged Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women.

The BAME Women in Business programme is an innovative, enterprise support programme aimed at tackling inequalities and poverty in disadvantaged BAME communities in North London by supporting economically inactive women to become self-employed and active citizens. The funding will provide a programme of training, advice and expertise to help women to set up sustainable community based businesses.

We have been shortlisted from 140 applicants nationally and the final choice is made by the public voting.

Please do support us and click on the following: and give us your vote for this much needed and innovative project. It will take less than 30 seconds.

Voting closes on Wednesday 28th Nov at 12pm.

Many thanks!


Parveen, one of JAN Trust’s beneficiaries, says:

“A big thank you to JAN Trust who has helped me gain new skills and confidence. They supported me in opening my own fashion business which is proving to be successful. JAN Trust has inspired me to continue with my business and support my family out of poverty.”

Lynne Featherstone MP for Wood Green and Hornsey and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for International Development, says: “I have visited JAN Trust’s headquarters and met their staff, and truly believe they offer an invaluable service, extending much needed help, advice and training to women who are otherwise hard to reach.”
