Our work in Somerset

Guardian Society features the work of one of our Catalysts Rhys Davies this week. Rural Somerset is one of the most challenging areas in which to organise flexible, responsive and economic care to help older people to stay in their own home. Over 2 ½  years Rhys has supported the development of 173 brand new ‘start-up’ enterprises and advised a further 38. The result is a directory of 211 care providers that people, their families and social workers can contact. Between them these enterprises are supporting 700 older people and creating 220 local jobs. Collectively they provide over 3000 hours of care or support a week.
