The excellent Community Catalysts have organised a series of events that will bring together ways in which disabled people’s organisations and older people’s organisations can work in partnership with others to support disabled and older people to set up social care enterprises.
Community Catalysts starts with the assumption that everybody has skills, talents and aspirations they can use, irrespective of age, impairment or illness. Since many older and disabled people use social care services and know what good (and bad) care looks like better than anyone else, they can often establish their own enterprise offering care or support services to others. The events therefore look at how to help create the right environment in which this can happen.
There are 3 free events – in Middlesbrough, Sheffield and Bristol. You can find out more about them and sign up via the links below:
I’m pleased to say that representatives from the Strengthening DPULOs Programme will be at each of these events, so we hope to meet you there.
(We’ve worked with Community Catalysts before. You can find out more about CC’s offer to DPULOs in this useful two-pager.)
