This unique café has been running at the National Justice Museum in Nottingham since January 2016. The team are made up of young people with a range of learning disabilities who receive training, mentoring and work experience to help kick-start their careers. In July 2017, they benefitted from a donation of £3,800.
Jill Carter, director of Pulp Friction says: “The project offers real work experience in a public-facing city centre venue as well as qualification and training opportunities that someone wanting to work in the hospitality industry would need.
“It also offers a chance for young people to demonstrate that they can reach a level of skill for long-term employment opportunities and a great deal of self-confidence.
“We are very grateful for the donation from The Nottingham which will support twenty young people to undertake training and work placements.”
