Welcome to Community Catalysts

Community Catalysts harness the talents of people and communities to provide imaginative solutions to complex social issues and care needs. We are a Community Interest Company established by and working in close partnership with the charity Shared Lives Plus.

Learning lessons from enterprising people

Headings like ‘social care’, ‘health care’, ‘community’ and ‘housing’ broadly describe the areas in which we operate but labels bring their own limitations. With this in mind we try hard not to limit our thinking to the conventional and are always willing and able to look for radically imaginative solutions that cross sectors and join up dots in unexpected ways.

We work with local partners (local authorities, PCTs and other voluntary and private sector organisations) to stimulate and support the development of high quality and sustainable local enterprises.

We support the development of Shared Lives schemes and Homeshare programmes. We facilitate personalisation in practice, externalisation of services and help organisations turn great ideas into inspiring enterprise. Read on to find out more…
