About the project:

GL11 is seeking funding for a training kitchen and its community café. This project will provide training and volunteering opportunities for 192 young disabled/vulnerable adults in the café at a cost of £10 per week per trainee. The project also aims to engage over 1300 vulnerable people of all ages, but particularly ‘older and overlooked’ within the community, so that they feel supported and safe attending the café at a cost of £0.30 per person per week. The café and training kitchen is envisioned as a catalyst to inspire people into seeking employment and trying other social prescribing activities at GL11.
