Community Catalysts Develops Radical Solutions to Social Issues

Community Catalysts is a Community Interest Company based in the United Kingdom that tackles a range of social issues and care needs. On their website, they say that categories like ‘housing,’ ‘health care,’ ‘social care’ and ‘community’ to an extent describe the arenas that they work in, but of course, with labels comes limitations.

Community Catalysts functions under NAAPS UK, which is a network that creates small-scale and family-based ways to support adults through health and social care services.

Rather than be bogged down by fussy labels, Community Catalysts harnesses imagination in order to span sectors and make connections in unlooked-for ways. How exactly do they manage to do that? As stated on their website, Community Catalysts offers a range of non-traditional services and products that include stimulating and supporting micro-enterprise, nurturing entrepreneurialism, homeshare programs helping people live independently, putting personalization into practice and event speakers and facilitators bringing passion and expertise to an audience.

Many grassroots organizations often lack the resources to develop the necessary web-based content to reach their intended audiences. Thankfully, however, the Community Catalysts website offers a breadth of content regarding case studies, the background and values of the organization and an in-depth explanation of their various services and products, which is a plus for anyone interesting in learning more.

Community Catalysts is another example of how it takes a delicate balance of imagination, knowledge, passion, strategy and collaboration to create a community-focused social enterprise that responds to local needs.
