This week we would like to introduce you to Cornerstone, who provide care and support services for adults, children and young people with disabilities and other support needs. They help them realise their true potential while creating increased social inclusion, improved independence health and general well–being.
Cornerstone came to The Circle in May of this year because the idea of a social enterprise hub was something that very much appealed to them, particularly the idea of building relationships and co-working with like-minded people from other organisations.
In fact, being able to meet and build a network of contacts with various groups and people that they may not have come into contact with has already proven successful. They have made a really great link with Uppertunity CIC and its “Simply Stitch” Group, which has allowed some of the adults they support to take up sewing. The classes are pitched at a good level for those they support and they have been making some really high quality items, including cushion covers, which has given them a real sense of pride in what they have achieved.
We at The Circle are delighted to see our tenants and groups be able to come together and support each other, and are very much looking forward to see what happens next.
