The University of Birmingham has recently completed a two-year evaluation of micro-enterprises providing care and support in the Dudley and Wolverhampton areas. The research looked at how micro-enterprises compared to larger care providers in terms of being personalised, valued, innovative and cost-effective.


At the launch event the findings of the research will be shared, and people will hear from local providers and users of care services about their experiences of care and support in the locality. As well as sharing the national findings, the researchers will propose locally-relevant ideas about how to promote a diverse market of care provision. This is particularly important given the focus that the Care Act 2014 places on market development activity.
