Enterprising Solutions can support new and emerging community enterprise organisations in a wide range of sectors across Wales.  As long as the enterprise is community led, it could operate in any sector or field.

To take part, community organisations must have an intention to trade and generate an income from their community enterprise project idea.

Enterprising Solutions is aimed at new or existing voluntary and community sector organisations, especially hard to reach groups and communities who have not previously tapped into support for their community enterprise idea.  It could help:

  • Community groups in the initial stages of setting up a community enterprise project, who may, or may not, have done some initial test trading
  • Those with an innovative idea to develop a new enterprise opportunity in a community in Wales
  • Those exploring a range of community enterprise ideas in the face of public sector cuts
  • An existing organisation exploring new, innovative and enterprising ways in which to sustain current services / activities or acquiring community owned assets for the first time
  • Completely new groups who have come together to save a local building or service from closure and manage it as a sustainable community enterprise
