Alternative Angles is an emerging Social Enterprise that provides support to people with learning disabilities to experience and develop new skills and build confidence in order for them to enhance their individual employment opportunities and thereby fulfil their potential. We operate across 5 locations within Northern Ireland (Antrim, Ballymena, Coleraine, Cookstown and Newtownabbey). We work closely with the Northern Health & Social Services Trust and have devised the enterprise as an integral part of the Trust’s 5 year “Widening Choice & Opportunities strategy.

“The name “Alternative Angles” is derived from a play on words taken from the name of our parent organization Triangle Housing Association. When first introduced in 2006 the social enterprise service represented an alternative approach to the traditional support services provided by the parent organisations- hence the name Alternative Angles.

Through involvement in Alternative Angles friendly work focused environments, trainees are able to learn new skills and develop existing skills while building confi- dence in their own ability within a group of their peers. Alternative Angles forms part of Triangle’s Progression to Employment Service and is funded by the European Social Fund, Northern Health & Social Care Trust and the Department for Employment & Learning.
