Social Enterprises helping people to live a better life Could You Play a Part ??
Social Enterprises (SEs) are organisations that work in the heart of communities looking to support people to have a better quality of life and improve the environment in which they live. Often they are founded by local people themselves and look to address issues or inequalities that exist within their own communities.
One particular area that Social Enterprises are really successful with, is supporting people with their health and social care needs. This may be supporting someone within their own home with daily tasks such as bathing or dressing, enabling them to access the wider community, or simply anything that allows them to live as full a life as possible.
Here are a few quotes from people that have been supported by local Social Enterprises: ‘I was able to out of the house for the first time in 20 years’; ‘support is fabulous. I wouldn’t have been able to get through this without you guys’.
