The Café is based at Dunsfold Park, in close proximity to Jigsaw+ and Jigsaw School. It provides Clients with the opportunity to work, fully supported, within a busy catering environment.
All Clients accessing the Café for work experience engage in a wide range of activities, which are ‘tailored’ to the ability and tolerance levels of each person.
Working alongside the Café Manager and other members of the Café staff, Clients are very much involved with the smooth running of the day-to-day business. This helps to boost their confidence, promotes a feeling of well-being and enables the acquisition of transferable life skills.
Clients are also given plenty of opportunities to visit the Café as customers, ordering and paying for their food and beverages, and sitting amongst other visitors to the Café. This encourages social interaction and, in turn, helps develop important social skills, in a caring and understanding environment.
