Jon was the winner of the Mary Williamson Award for Ayrshire at the 2023 Star Awards!

Jon started to receive community support from Cornerstone’s Ayrshire branch last year. Due to several illnesses, Jon spent six months in a rehabilitation ward where he worked hard to regain abilities that he lost. Upon leaving he became very reluctant to go out in his community. Jon has continuously challenged himself and pushed himself out of his comfort zone. 

He now regularly takes part in outdoor activities such as attending the weekly disco and getting his staff to dance alongside him, taking centre stage at community karaoke, and showing off his fantastic pool skills. Jon has developed a great relationship with staff and other people we support within the community support service. His independence has grown whilst having a positive attitude and outlook on life.
