 AGM 2016 - Cafe and Maintenance Members Achievements

About The Unit

All activities in the Café and Maintenance unit are carried out by members and staff side by side. The unit provides one-to-one and group support for members who want to work in a service industry-style setting, running a busy, fully operational café each day which provides snacks and refreshments as well as a home-cooked two-course lunch. It is also responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the Clubhouse and its gardens.

The unit work includes the preparation and cooking of the day’s main meal with three main options, a meat option as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes. It also includes the preparation of snacks throughout the day. Members who have a favourite meal are invited to cook or run workshops teaching other members their skills.

Other tasks in the unit include keeping the gardens tidy and general maintenance around the building.

I Am Making A Progress

My journey at the clubhouse started in the Hospitality and Horticulture unit, but since joining I have felt more confident in myself (the confidence comes and goes), not just in a working environment but also social as well. I still do feel sometimes that it’s difficult to socialise with other people but I’m working on it but all in all I feel I’m making good progress.

Back into Employment after 25 Years

I didn't know if I could do it. I didn't have much confidence in myself. I had always thought that work was a thing of the past and that I was on benefits for the rest of my life. At the age of 58, I thought that was it.
