A Report by Sapphire Malcolm
Cafe Leep is a Community Cafe and accredited training centre for adults with learning disabilities. The trainees would gain hands on work experience helping to run the cafe while studying food safety. Our NVQ tutor ( Darren Nixon) helps them pass a nationally recognised Level 2 in Food Safety which prepares our trainees for employment in other cafes and catering.
During lockdown Darren continued to run his sessions with our trainees via our Facebook Group. We are really pleased that the sessions could be accessed by other members who were interested in learning new skills too.
Having regular sessions and a learning focus every morning was an important way to keeping well when many social support centres were closed. The sessions were also a lot of fun and members and trainees enjoyed seeing and supporting each other.
