Micro providers

Micro providers are care and support services based within the communities they serve. They can be individuals, groups, voluntary or community organisations or small businesses (no more than five paid or unpaid full-time equivalent workers).

Due to their size, micro providers can offer a broad range of diverse, personalised and flexible support, from typical home care services to support with exercise, social activities or employment.

Services can be purchased by people funding their own care or by those getting help through a personal budget from the council.
