Overview of Support offered

We offer work experience and enterprise opportunities in a cafe business. The cafe is a social enterprise.
You will work in a real life business situation learning the catering trade with a view to being transitioned into this line of work. You will be supported in areas that you help in to achieve this aim, such as travel training, budgeting and social skills.
The project also offers opportunities for a group of you to work together on organising events in the community. These events can be on an issue that is relevant to you and can take the form of a music event or art installation. You will be supported to design, organise and deliver the event.

You will learn new skills such as communication, social networking, marketing, printing, organisation as well as your confidence and self-esteem being increased. The support offered will very much depend on what you need and will be tailored to suit your needs.
