Could you offer help at home to people in your neighbourhood?
An exciting initiative is now up and running across Denbighshire which means you can get free professional advice to help you work for yourself offering care and support.
Many people in the area are looking for support at home.
Join a free online event on Thursday 24 February to find out more in a relaxed setting.
Learn about the support you can get, ask questions and hear about others who have already set up.
A number of people from a range of backgrounds are already in the process of setting up in Denbighshire.
They are offering various services, from help with washing and dressing, cooking, cleaning, support with hobbies and more.
Nick Hughes, who is leading the project for Community Catalysts, said: “Lots of people in Denbighshire need some extra help to live the way they want to, perhaps because they are older, disabled or have a long-term health condition. We can help you set up as self-employed offering care and support. You don’t need to have a professional background in care or know how to run a business – you just need to know what good care looks like.”
Councillor Bobby Feeley, Lead Member for Well-being and Independence, said: “We are really pleased to be working with Community Catalysts to help provide more support to the older and disabled population. This is a fantastic programme which can really help caring entrepreneurs bring their own ideas to life for caring and supporting people and I look forward to seeing those with great initiatives take up the worthwhile guidance given through this partnership.”
The project is being run by social enterprise Community Catalysts and funded by Denbighshire County Council.
To find out more about the process of setting up and to ask any questions, come along to a free online event on Thursday 24 February at 12pm or 6.30pm.
