Scheme aims to provide care and support for young people

A countywide initiative is turning to providing care and support for young people.

Denbighshire County Council is working in partnership with social enterprise Community Catalysts to help those wishing to turn their own dreams into reality to offer care and support to older and disabled people in their local communities.

Community Catalysts offer free professional advice to help people work for themselves and provide care and support across the county.

Thanks to this initiative there are now 16 micro-providers working for themselves in Denbighshire bringing their own ideas to life to help others.

And now the scheme is offering support for budding entrepreneurs to make a difference to the lives of young people.

Nick Hughes Community Catalyst for Denbighshire, said: “We have supported a number of micro-providers in realising their own dreams to provide care and support to older and disabled people and now we want to help those with great ideas to help younger members of the local community.

“Community Catalysts can help you to set up as self-employed offering support to young people with additional needs or a disability in a community group or one-to-one.

“It has been fantastic to see individuals wanting to put their own personal ideas to use to help others and I hope we can see this carry on to support our younger generation.

Councillor Elen Heaton, Lead Member for Health and Social Care, said: “It is fantastic to see how this partnership has already helped a number of individuals breathe life into their own ideas to help people in the local community and I look forward to hearing and seeing the support coming through for our younger community members
