The Micro-enterprise Development Programme is here to help you and other local people to set up small enterprises (we call you Micro-providers) that offer help at home and other care and support services older and disabled people across Somerset.
Our aim is to help you to set up your new enterprise, to make it safe, legal and sustainable. Once on the programme we will offer you help, advice, guidance and information including signposting you to sources of specialist advice.
All support through the programme is free but in exchange for our help we will only support providers who have the motivation and values to do it right.
If you feel becoming a micro-provider is for you, and you have met our quality standards we have an accreditation process, so people looking for care or support can be confident that they can find the a provider that they trust.
