We believe everyone has something they care about and something to offer. It is in doing things together that barriers between people are broken down, confidence is built and opportunities emerge. As Canadian philosopher Jean Vanier puts it, ‘one of the marvellous things about community is that it enables us to welcome people in a way we couldn’t as individuals’.
‘You’re Welcome’ supports and encourages neighbourhoods where everyone knows someone to say hello to and have a cup of tea with, and has people to call on if they need a hand. Of course ‘everyone’ includes people with disabilities and mental health challenges at the heart of the action. That is why the site features an ‘accessibility’ section where you can find useful links and tips on how to customise your browser to make it easier to use.
