Supported by PAVS, PLANED, Community Catalysts and Pembrokeshire County Council, the Catalysts for Care project supports people with a caring nature and a good idea to set up their own care or support enterprise.
Our aim is to expand the choice of small, local care and support enterprises in Pembrokeshire so that people can choose from a range of personal, flexible services that work for them.
We offer two free programmes to set up a care or support enterprise:
Community Micro-Enterprise Programme
What is a community micro-enterprise?
A small care or support business that helps people to live independently and well. Often, they are sole traders but could be a small Limited Company employing up to eight people.
They can provide a range of services including:
- Support to remain independent at home – cleaning, preparing meals, gardening etc.
- Companionship and support to access social groups and activities
- Support with personal care needs
Social Enterprise Programme
What is a social enterprise?
A Social Enterprise is a business that trades to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances or the environment. It trades by selling goods or services just like any other business. It is how they work and what they do with their profits that is different; working to make a bigger difference and reinvesting any profits, after costs, into delivering their social aims.
