Stepping Stones NI social enterprises are part financed by the European Social Fund and the Department for the Economy.
We operate five social enterprises in Lisburn and Newtownards. Each business serves as a realistic training platform for people with a learning disability, Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia or a learning difficulty.
Our social enterprises include three 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 come from 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 #buysocial.
