START-UP businesses in deprived areas such as Oxmoor, in Huntingdon, will be able to get special help and advice under a new county-wide scheme.

Towns such as Ramsey will also benefit from CREAM (Cambridge and Rural, Enterprise Advice and Mentoring), which has been funded under the Investing in Communities programme by EEDA (East of England Development Agency) and the Greater Cambridge Partnership. The four-year scheme will be delivered by NWES, one of the UK's largest enterprise agencies.

Individuals interested in the programme can expect free business advice in one-to-one sessions, group training courses and workshops. Course content will include best practice in business and will also enhance clients' personal development skills, NWES says.

Training will be given in areas such as confidence building, improving assertiveness, and presentation skills. Sessions will be held at various times, including evenings, weekends and school friendly hours.
