Do you have an idea that could help disabled and older 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 a new and exciting initiative, delivered in partnership with social enterprise Community Catalysts and Birmingham City Council. The 18-month programme offers support to local people to set up and run their own very small enterprise offering help and support for disabled and older people, to complement established day centres and services. The project will have an initial focus on Hodge Hill, Hall Green and Erdington constituencies.
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
