The Micro-provider initiative, run by Denbighshire County Council is going from strength to strength, with over 30 individual businesses now set up around the county.
The council run initiative is a free development programme, supporting residents to set up their own micro-provider service in their local communities. Micro-providers offer care and support to older and disabled people in their own homes to help them live their lives their way.
Collectively, the 31 businesses provide 520 hours of care in Denbighshire to 146 residents each week.
These businesses help citizens in a number of different ways, including; practical help around the house, cleaning, helping with meals, DIY, shopping, personal care, dog walking, companionship and much more.
The scheme is free to join and enables the people of Denbighshire to work for themselves, choose their own hours and work locally, helping the local people in their community and offer a service that they can be proud of.
Councillor Elen Heaton, Lead Member for Health and Social Care said:
“The outcome of this council run scheme is a brilliant example of the strengths of the individuals we have living in our county. This is a brilliant service that helps provide the local community with a range of vital services”.
“Each Micro-provider delivers an important service within the county, helping people live in their own homes for longer, as well as improving the quality of their lives.
“This is a great project, with many benefits to all involved, so if you or someone you know may be interested, then I would encourage you to get in touch with the team”.
