Livability Corner Patch is a social enterprise that supports people to create and sell bespoke products to the local community in Oswestry.
Livability supports a team at the Corner Patch shop to produce a range of hand crafted gifts and interior décor including sewn items such as bunting and cushions, jewellery and gift boxes. The shop is in the heart of Oswestry. Livability Corner Patch is currently open three days a week on: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The focus is to support people learn new skills, make connections, grow wellbeing and build new pathways to employment. The service also has a particular understanding of disability and mental health.
Livability Maesbury Metals and Livability Corner Patch are both day services running in Oswestry.
Learning and vocation
Livability Maesbury Metals and Livability Corner Patch are both part of the Livability family of services. Livability is the disability charity that connects people with their communities. Through a wide range of disability, employment, training and community services, we promote inclusion and wellbeing for all.
Livability Learning and Vocation services have proven expertise in supporting disabled and vulnerable people pursue vocational interests, new skills and employment opportunities. We enable people to launch their own businesses, get interview training and grow core life skills.
This day service is for adults who would like to learn a new skill, providing a place for people to get work experience and feel part of the community – all alongside creating sellable products.
People can join in on a short or long term basis, depending on what they would like to get out of their time.
For some attendees this is learning needle craft skills in the shop, helping at on the till or preparing items for sale.
Referrals into the service are by social services at Shropshire Council.
