Community Enterprise Project

Working together to help people in Mablethorpe, Theddlethorpe,

Sutton on Sea and Trusthorpe

Do you need help to turn your idea into a community venture or business?

Do you have an idea that could help older or disabled people?

Do you want to give back to your community or are you already supporting people in a community group?

Do you want to be your own boss and work on a self-employed basis offering care and support?

Are you already helping people and would like to do more?

This project is a new and exciting initiative, delivered by Lincolnshire Community Voluntary Service and in partnership with the National Centre for Rural Health & Care, and Community Catalyst. The 18-month programme offers support to local people, to set up and run their own small community enterprises who will offer a range of help and support within the home for older people and / or disabled people who want to live life their way. The project has a focus on the Mablethorpe, Theddlethorpe, Sutton on Sea and Trusthorpe area.

Community Enterprise:

All community enterprises aim to make a difference to the lives of local people. They:

  • have 8 or fewer full-time staff or volunteers and are independent of any larger organisation.

  • Are set up in many different and creative ways such as: sole trader, partnership, small business, social enterprise, charity, or voluntary organisation.


Support from the project:

Lincolnshire community voluntary service runs a development programme which can:

  • offer you a friendly and supportive point of contact to explore ideas.

  • support you to develop your community enterprise.

  • give you practical information on regulation, training and opportunities in the health and social care sector.

  • direct you to other organisations who can help.

Small grants are available to help with the Startup fee* (this could help with DBS’s, insurance, flyers, business cards and training) *we recommend that if you are in receipt of any benefits or entitlements, please check eligibility with your work coach.
