Free support to help you set up your own small homecare business

Community Catalysts is a social enterprise that can:

  • offer friendly and supportive point of contact to explore ideas
  • connect you with other like-minded people
  • give you practical information on regulation, training and opportunities in the health and social care sector
  • direct you to other organisations who can help

Your small homecare business could offer a range of flexible and genuinely caring services and support to older and disabled people such as

  • help at home such as cleaning, meal preparation, shopping, dressing, bathing
  • day, evening or weekend hobbies
  • help to stay connected to friends and leisure activities

How it works:

You also decide on your own reasonable rate of pay.

We can help you with:

  • Guidance on regulations
  • Information about free business start-up support
  • Help to market your business
  • Obtaining an enhanced DBS check
  • Free starter-pack of PPE (subject to availability)
  • Direction towards available training
