Community Micro-enterprises

Community Catalysts - Unlocking potential, effecting change.

Our Vision

Supporting people to lead the lives they want to live is central to our Making a Difference Every Day strategy. To achieve this, we need to give people control and support them to make informed choices about the type of support they receive, as well as ensuring we have a wide range of support available for people in the community.

How are we supporting the development?

Kent County Council are working with Community Catalysts, a social enterprise working across the UK, to try to make sure that people who need care and support to live their lives can get help in ways, times and places that suit them, with real choice of attractive local options.

The two-year project aims to stimulate the development and growth of Community Micro-enterprises that provide a wide range of help and support for older and disabled people at home and in the community. Helping local people use their energies and talents to deliver sustainable community enterprises that can support other local people, creating jobs and volunteering opportunities.
