To be part of the Dream Factory:
- Come and have a chat with us about your ideas. (Don’t worry – you don’t need a formal business plan at this stage, just an idea of what you want to do and why you think you’d be able to make a go of it)
- The Dream Factory is a project supported by the Methodist Church. Applications to be part of the Dream Factory are open to those of any faith and none, though all should feel able to respect the Christian values of the project.
- The Dream Factory is an accessible and supportive space for small businesses which may otherwise be vulnerable due to their small scale or to particular needs and experiences of those running them. For example; recurrent health issues, life situations, childcare needs etc. Many Dream Factory members work full or part time in addition to running their enterprises and some are either taking small steps into turning a hobby into a business or coming back into work after a period away.
- The Dream Factory values diversity and welcomes all nationalities, faiths, genders and sexualities.
