About us

This is a new project in Somerset which aims to assist very small (micro) services offering care or support. 

The project will last for two years and aims to support providers so that they thrive, deliver great services and increase the choice available for people who require care or support; whether they pay for that themselves or via council funding.

We offer

• A collective voice for micro- providers 
• A single route for purchasers and customers to engage with a wide variety of very small scale providers

• Signposting to tailored training and learning 
• Signposting to funding for training and learning activity 
• Support to engage effectively with regulators locally and nationally and to meet regulatory requirements 
• Support to engage with local authority commissioning and procurement structures and systems 
• Support to engage with the personalisation agenda and to design and deliver services to people who are purchasing their own care and support 
• Sign posting to other appropriate information and advice services and work with those services to ensure that they understand the requirements of very small scale social care providers. 
• Practical support in developing policies, procedures and methods of working 
• Support and advice to manage individual situations and address identified problems 
• Signposting to tailored insurance or other products 
• A place where people can get together for mutual support and to reduce isolation
