Social enterprise 'Star Enterprise Work and Play' is part of a few brands including Starlinks and Reach 4 the Stars that create inclusive environments for people with learning disabilities.
Based in Sheffield, U.K., Star Enterprise Work and Play, which is run entirely by volunteers, wants people to have fun and socialize. Social networks -- creating and maintaining friendships -- are important to create a fulfilling life. "The organisation want to address the issue of hate crime and bullying resulting from poor awareness around learning disabilities and social exclusion," said Christine Anderson and Ruth Parrott in an interview with Big Venture Challenge. When individuals are isolated, they can have a harder time dealing tackling bullying.
Fun is indeed the name of the game with Star Enterprise Work and Play and its affiliates.
