Community Catalysts – Community micro-enterprise project

  • Do you have an idea that could help people live life their way in the community?
  • Do you need help to turn your idea into an enterprise or small community venture?
  • Are you already helping people and would like to do more?

Community micro-enterprise project

This project is an exciting initiative, delivered by social enterprise Community Catalysts in partnership with Birmingham City Council. The project offers support to local people to set up and run their own very small (micro) enterprise that offers help and support to others. It has a particular interest in enterprises that offer opportunities to people with a learning disability and/or autism.

Community micro-enterprise

All community micro-enterprises aim to make a difference to the lives of local people. They:

  • have 8 or fewer full-time staff or volunteers
  • are independent of any larger organisation
  • are set up in many different and creative ways such as: sole trader, partnership, small business, social enterprise, charity or voluntary organisation

Support from the project

Community Catalysts can:

  • offer you a friendly and supportive point of contact to explore ideas
  • support you to develop your community enterprise
  • give you practical information on regulation, training and opportunities in the health and social care sector
  • direct you to other organisations who can help
