Jigsaw’s Café Enterprise is based on Dunsfold Park, in close proximity to JigsawPlus. It provides the adults we support with the opportunity to work, fully supported, within a busy catering environment and enables them to experience a wide range of activities, tailored to their individual abilities and tolerance levels.

Whilst Jigsaw’s Cafe on the Park is focused on providing an Enterprise environment for our Learners we also provide a cafe facility for tenants and business here on Dunsfold Park.

Working alongside the Café Manager and other members of the Café staff, the adults we support 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.

Additionally, the Café kitchen provides the infrastructure for learners to access a number of different cooking and baking skills programmes and certificates of achievement.

All adults accessing JigsawPlus 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.
