The Council to continue successful ‘Micro-provider’ development programme

The Council will continue to offer a free development programme which supports residents to set up their own micro-provider service in their local communities, following the success of the project over the past year. 

‘Micro-providers’ offer care and support to older and disabled people in their own homes, helping them live their lives their way. So far, there are over 20 micro-providers operating in Denbighshire, who support around 140 residents.

The mentoring programme is completely free to join and allows the micro-providers to work for themselves, choose their own hours, work locally and offer a service that they will be proud of.

The programme offers a friendly and supportive point of contact to help to set up the micro-provider service. It also offers practical information on regulation, training and opportunities in the social care sector.

Micro-providers offer a range of services, including practical help around the house, cleaning, helping with meals, DIY, shopping, personal care, dog walking, companionship and much more.

Councillor Elen Heaton, Lead Member for Health and Social Care said: “This is a brilliant service that helps provide the local community with a range of vital services. I am looking forward to seeing our micro-providers out and about helping in our communities all across the county”.
