Back to all projects


Supported the development of small enterprises offering highly personalised care and help at home to older and disabled people. Community Catalysts worked in partnership with Dorset Council for 2 years via our Community Enterprise Catalyst Anita Wingad.

In September 2020 local support from our Community Enterprise Catalyst ended but as part of the legacy arrangements we are continuing to provide arms-length support virtually via email and phone to the existing community enterprises and any new enterprise leaders for a time limited period only. Tess Brooks is providing the virtual support on behalf of Community Catalysts.

“The support and advocacy offered to these enterprise leaders has been bespoke but consistent in quality, enabling local people to make an impact in their local communities. We look forward to seeing how these enterprises continue to flourish into the future.”
