Stepping Stones

child with stepping stonesWe see the path towards "inclusion" having three stages - we call "Stepping Stones". To succeed, we look to invest in people like Daniel who, despite his own disability, travels almost every day to visit those housebound, taking food and shopping. Daniel is their main contact to the outside world. By helping with local transport, soon a few people can become less isolated, here we have the first steps towards "inclusion".
