Stepping Stones NI social enterprises are part financed by the European Social Fund and the Department for the Economy.
We operate six social enterprises in Lisburn, Downpatrick and Newtownards. Each business serves as a realistic training platform for people with Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, a learning difficulty or learning disability.
We have grown significantly in the last two years with four cafes, a guild commended picture framing business and a bespoke wedding stationery business. All profits are reinvested to support our work.
Trainees are overseen and trained by our talented and passionate staff team. Our cafe staff are skilled in their field of catering and hospitality. They train and supervise our trainees in customer service and food preparation with some of our trainees working towards NVQ qualifications.
Our picture framing and wedding stationery staff have a craft and design background. They work with our trainees in these businesses to create beautifully handcrafted wedding stationery and bespoke frames for our customers.
We love what we do and hope you do too. Come visit us to experience what we do and #buysocial.
