BEDG Ltd was established in 1994. The main object for which BEDG Ltd 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 Ltd 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.

In 2004 BEDG Ltd opened its Training Division to supply training to the community, private sector and industry to supply clients with necessary skills to obtain jobs. Over recent years the training division of the company has grown substantially. BEDG Ltd has achieved the FETAC, ICS (ECDL, ECDL Advanced) and MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) accreditations.

In 2013 BEDG Ltd opened the Job Club which is funded by the Department of Social Protection for clients in receipt of a Social Welfare payment. Each Job Club runs full time for 2 weeks and is offered free to clients referred from the Department of Social Protection. It provides advice on CV Preparation, Interview Skills, Letter Writing, Application Forms, Job Sourcing and Career Guidance. The Job Club is based alongside the Training Division in Unit 9, BEAT Centre, Balbriggan, Co. Dublin.
