Working with local partners across Wrexham to increase the number and range of homecare and support options for local people.
Supporting people to develop small enterprises and ventures (community enterprises) across the whole of Wrexham that can provide real choice for people alongside existing care providers – both homecare and a range of support that can help people’s overall wellbeing. As part of the project, we have developed a directory to showcase community enterprises in the local area.
We are so pleased to be working with Community Catalysts in developing sustainable, local enterprises able to respond to the needs of our older and disabled citizens. As well as enabling us to meet local demand, the programme will harness a new type of social care workforce providing additional work opportunities for people-working in a way that suits them and their family at these challenging times. The free support from Community Catalysts will help budding entrepreneurs
