Abstract:

I have written the paper at this time for several reasons. Firstly to show how an employee owned enterprise can be set up and survive in the present environment of huge corporations and a global economy. Second, how one individual can be an inspiration to a project’s success by allowing her own enthusiasm and entrepreneurialism to rub off onto her colleagues and peers and encourage others to set up similar enterprises. Lastly to show policy makers why the co-owned home care is worth supporting, encouraging and promoting as a much needed model of good practice.

Sunderland Home Care Associates is a successful company whether you look at it as a worker cooperative, social enterprise, employee owned business or a conventional private company.
