Revere the Residence was created by founder Kate Revere, inspired by her teenage daughter Piper. Piper is autistic, profoundly deaf and blessed with a creative ability to be truly jealous of. They both have a passion for interiors and styling, mixing vintage with finds from new independent creators (although Piper's love tends more to the smaller 'vintage dolls house' scale).
Kate, like many other parents of disabled children, has always worried about what will Piper do once she leaves education, especially as she can't read or write. With many other talents, where will she find somewhere that inspires her, values her, and most of all, makes her feel safe? The opportunities are pretty limited.
Hoping to combine all these skills, as well as meeting Piper's needs, whilst responding to the ethics at the heart of the community they live in: Kate came up with the idea for a social enterprise. A homeware and lifestyle shop where people can spend their money wisely, on unique products, and support their community. The Revere the Residence social enterprise was born!
Kate made this her founding principle: that everyone employed or gaining work experience through Revere the Residence would either be a parent of a disabled child or a young adult with an additional need. Revere the Residence will work with local colleges, youth clubs and local authorities to establish strong links to help give opportunities to as many people as possible. In addition to the business, they will fundraise and grow the social enterprise to support people, by finding opportunities where they may develop their skills and interests after their time with Revere the Residence.
