In essence the project is about local people helping other local people who need some support at home, in all its forms. How they set themselves up to do that is entirely their choice – as a sole trader, or maybe with friends they can set up as a co-operative or social enterprise.
The Community Micro-enterprise project offers free support helping people to understand how to provide the best care and support they can, as part of their own enterprise, for their neighbours and people in their community. It would be fantastic to see people setting up in the Downham Villages.
