On a budget and if you would like portable have a look at YN560-II Manual Flash (ebay about £50), great power output fast recycle times. Add a couple of lightstands and umbrellas.
and a quick test shot of my young lad just to give an idea.
Thanks Gareth that's brill, when u say add a couple of light stands and umbrellas!! what sort do u mean, is their any u would advise on. Thanks
Debbie I will send a pm and i will link you to suitable items on ebay.
Thank you look forward to hearing from you

I have just gone on the link and used the cantact page and messaged you through that
Debbie some links sent to you, maybe other members could give some ideas as well.
Firstly have you a single flash unit.
Seems a little strange to go for a background support system if you have no lighting at all.
As well as flash lighting, you can use much cheaper bulb constant lighting, though flash is good for freezing movement and stopping pupils from shrinking in the bright constant lighting.
How big is the subject you are shooting? is it table top products/pets etc or full length people shots?
Do you want bright fashion shots or moody one light images?
