Who they are

Everybody has skills, talents and aspirations, things they want to do with their life and are passionate about. Older or disabled people and those living with a long term health condition are no different. People can find real satisfaction in using their time to set up a small enterprise or running an initiative to benefit others in their community. In focusing on their gifts and talents, sometimes for the first time, people find an opportunity to grow in confidence and skill whilst their neighbours and communities gain innovative enterprise leaders.  It’s a win-win situation that benefits everyone.

What we offer

Most entrepreneurs and social innovators face barriers and challenges in turning their ideas into reality. For this reason people often need some help, support, advice or information. For older or disabled entrepreneurs or social innovators the barriers can be even more complex and as a result some people may need help and advice that is more extensive, specialist or sensitive. Community Catalysts can design and deliver projects that support older and disabled entrepreneurs and social innovators and provide the help they need to get their enterprise or community initiative off the ground.
