Our Training Room BEDG was established in 1994. The main objective for which BEDG was established is to create an enterprise culture in the community by encouraging initiatives specifically geared towards supporting existing and new enterprises. Maximising local and regional resources thereby expanding opportunities for the unemployed, through the provision of support and training facilities, to participate fully in the economy while contributing to the maintenance and growth of viable sustainable jobs.

In 1994 BEDG employed a Manager, through funding from FÁS, to provide advice and support to the unemployed seeking to set up small enterprises in and around Balbriggan.
