Enterprising Solutions - Atebion Mentrus

People supporting people to take enterprising action in their communities. A practitioner led peer to peer support programme for community enterprises in Wales, Enterprising Solutions, has been developed by the Development Trusts Association Wales (DTA Wales). We want to help 100 Welsh communities, at the grassroots level, take action to become more enterprising and resilient, enabling people to develop their enterprise skills, confidence, self-reliance and connectedness. Many will go on to start a new enterprise and develop local solutions which will create income and benefit their local area. Based on the tried and tested successful Renew Wales model, participants will have access to peer advice and support from leading community enterprise practitioners in their locality and online. Get involved Are you part of a community group in the initial stages of setting up your community enterprise project or do you have an innovating idea to develop a new enterprising opportunity? Are you exploring a range of community enterprise ideas in the face of public sector funding cuts? Or are you an existing organisation exploring new, innovative and enterprising ways in which to sustain your current services and activities? Enterprising Solutions can help you. Your group, whether it is an existing voluntary and community organisation or a new group, who have come together to save a local building or service from closure and manage it as a sustainable community enterprise, will learn from and exchange knowledge and skills with others who have been there, set up and have the practical experience of running community enterprises. Action learning events, best practice exchanges, online resources, benchmarking and peer and specialist mentors will be available to support you and help you develop long term links with like-minded practitioners. With the support of a locally based Co-ordinator we will develop an action plan for your project and will match you with a Mentor that understands your needs, ability and timescales.
