How can we help develop social enterprise within the health and social care sector?
The Cardiff & Vale of Glamorgan Integrated Health and Social Care Partnership is hosting an event supported by Wales Co-operative Centre to examine how we can develop social enterprises across the region.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to promote social enterprises, co-operatives, user-led services and the third sector to deliver care and support and preventative services. There is also a requirement to promote the involvement of people for whom these care and support and preventative services are to be provided, in their planning design and operation.
The session will provide an overview of social enterprise along with real examples of work undertaken to help stimulate development. The session will also explore key issues such as maximising the impact in the local supply chain, working in partnership, empowering individuals, and financial inclusion.
