Karrek Community was founded by Paul & Geeta Ashton at the request of a number of Christians who were concerned about the future support arrangements for people with disabilities in Cornwall. Their desire was to ensure that there remains a choice in support provider for people who may wish to be supported by an organisation that is motivated by the Christian faith.
Following a number of meetings and conversations Paul & Geeta agreed to start a new Company that would meet the needs of a current group of people but also provide a choice for future generations who would wish to be supported in a Christian environment.
Karrek was formed as a direct result of local peoples views being heard and acted upon. The key challenge was to ensure that the company has a strong Christian ethos whilst at the same time operates in an inclusive way, welcoming anyone equally regardless of circumstances & background.
The company was formed in June 2014 and following registration with The Care Quality Commission in November 2014; started operating in May 2015.
