Working locally: micro-enterprises and building community assets

This paper examines the lessons NHS decision makers could learn from micro-scale approaches in social care, and the place of micro-enterprise development within an integrated health, care and support system.

Micro-enterprises – sole traders or small groups set up to build services around the needs of a specific group of people – and other small scale approaches to planning, purchasing and delivering health and care outcomes are becoming well established within social care.

The fourth in our series of papers looking at interactions between the NHS, individuals and communities.
