We are Community Catalysts

Community Catalysts is a Social Enterprise and Community Interest Company established by and working in close partnership with the charity Shared Lives Plus. We are a small group of energetic people who believe passionately in the power of people to effect social change. We work hard to harness the talents and imaginations of people in communities and organisations to provide imaginative solutions to complex social issues.

We want people who need care and support to live their lives to be able to get that help in ways, times and places that suit them – a real choice of attractive and sometimes quirky, local options. Headings like ‘social care’, ‘health care’, ‘community’ and ‘housing’ broadly describe the areas in which we work 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 nurture what works, challenge what doesn’t and find real workable alternatives.

We believe in the power of partnership and work closely with community groups, local councils, health trusts, CCGs, policy makers  and other voluntary and private sector organisations.
