Social enterprise is a relatively new and exciting venture for National Star. We currently manage hospitality and printing enterprises that provide paid work for a small number of people with physical and learning disabilities, and this is an area we are actively expanding as part of the wider charity’s vision. As a result, we’re very interested in hearing new social enterprise propositions. If you have an idea, or would just like to find out more, please get in touch with our Director of Business Development on 01242 527631 ext. 3749.
Protecting the health of National Star students and residents
To protect the health of our residential students and long-term residents, National Star is limiting access to some of its facilities. This applies to National Star, Ullenwood, Foundation House and Elizabeth House in Gloucester, Bradbury Gardens in Cheltenham, Matrixcare in Malvern and Ledbury Road, Hereford.
These sites are now considered ‘self-isolating’ households. This is a precautionary measure taking into consideration the latest Government advice around ‘at risk’ groups self-isolating for 12 weeks. Only staff, visiting professionals and close family members will be granted access. Stringent infection control measures are in place in order to enable this reduced access to continue.
