Micro providers

Micro providers are care and support services working the community they serve. They can be individuals, groups, voluntary or community organisations or small businesses. A micro provider has 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 home care services, to support with exercise, social activities or employment.

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