Café on the Park
The Café is based on Dunsfold Park, in close proximity to JigsawPlus. 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.
- Food preparation and baking
- Cash handling including till operation
- Weekly banking
- Serving customers and clearing tables
- Re-stocking front of house displays
- End of month stocktake
- Cutlery and glass polishing
- End of day cleaning
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.
