Rhondda Cynon Taf

Supporting local people to develop community enterprises offering care and support to other local people within their home.

This partnership project with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council is working to increase the range of community enterprises that support people who need some help within their home.

We are working across the whole of Rhondda Cynon Taf but have a specific focus on the North Cynon Valley. We are currently getting to know the area, building our understanding and making local connections.

“We are delighted to be working with Community Catalysts…This project has a dual benefit for people in RCT as it doesn’t only help expand the local social care market by creating an alternative workforce, but also creates opportunities for budding entrepreneurs and flexible work opportunities for people in their communities.”

Wider work across Wales

In November 2021 Care Inspectorate Wales published a report reviewing the performance and reviewed activities across Welsh local authorities. The report featured our Powys community enterprise project as an example of good practice. Find out more and read the full report here.
