Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce supporting businesses across the Mid Yorkshire region

MY Kickstart is a Gateway service primarily for businesses and social enterprises in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield that want to get involved in the Kickstart Scheme but are unable to offer 30+ kickstart placements directly.

Our support involves:

+ Bringing businesses together to create the minimum 30 Kickstart placements per application and providing advice and guidance along the way.

+ Liaising with Jobcentre Plus to support the pipeline of young people for interview.

+ Providing and managing tailored wraparound support for the young people you select to work with you.

The programme is open to all businesses that have are registered with Companies House or the Charity Commission; your eligibility for the scheme will be checked once you pledge your support.

Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce

Standing at the heart of the Halifax, Huddersfield and Wakefield business communities, our mission is to drive growth among businesses of all sizes across the districts, by providing relevant and valuable support and benefits.

We pride ourselves on representing three districts as one Chamber – your Chamber.

Serving the communities for over 165 years, we recognise the need for localised representation, a community voice and support tailored to each district.

Our knowledge of the opportunities and challenges of now and the future, have allowed us to develop three sub divisions to better represent our members locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

The Mid Yorkshire Chamber now parents The Halifax & District Chamber of Commerce, The Huddersfield & District Chamber of Commerce and The Wakefield & District Chamber of Commerce.

Each sub division provides members with additional representation and offers a more localised approach to business support.
