How SBA was started

SBA was founded in September 2010 by Patricia Marks to support those furthest away from economic activity into self-employment as a route back to being economically active once more.

SBA started small with the business launched from a home office in Patricia's garden.  SBA soon secured a number of contracts and worked as subcontractors to larger organisations. SBA initially delivered its service through a programme of workshops and seminars across Somerset designed to provide individuals with the tools and guidance to take their next steps.

It wasnt long before SBA outgrew the home office and found a new base within Great Bow Wharf where the head office is still located continuing to work as subcontractors within the enterprise, education and employment sector.   SBA now delivers across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
