In order to keep up with the growing demand of Social Care in Thurrock, Thurrock Council have collaborated with Community Catalysis on a project to support Micro Enterprises in the care sector.

Lots of people need some extra help, perhaps because they are older, disabled or have a long term health condition. The type of help that people need could include personal care, support with the home, to get out and about or work. Community enterprises are very small local ventures that offer people the help they need to live the life they want. All sorts of people run community enterprise and ventures including disabled and older people and family carers. Credit:
