Community enterprises for care and support

Running a community micro-enterprise

We would like to hear from you if you are:

  • interested in setting up a community micro-enterprise to support adults in your area
  • already running a community micro-enterprise that supports adults in your area and would like some help

We cannot accept community enterprise enquiries from companies or agencies.

How we can help

We can:

  • listen to your ideas and give you professional feedback
  • help you understand how care regulations and the law might apply to what you plan to do
  • give you practical advice on regulations, training and insurance
  • connect you with opportunities and other organisations that can help

At present we are only able to advise community micro-enterprises that support adults – or young people with a learning disability who are making the transition to adult services – in Thurrock.

We cannot help you to get council contracts – our pages on selling to the council give information on our tender process and links to contract opportunities.
