Introducing Lana’s Community Café….
Lana’s Café is a not for profit Self Reliance Group working at the Bridge Between Community Centre, and is run by Les, Anne and Lana.
Lana is Les and Anne’s 19 year old daughter and she has Additional Learning Needs. Les and Anne have realised for a long time that young adults with additional needs find it very difficult to find employment. leaving them feeling undervalued and often excluded from the local community.
The aim of Lana’s café is to try to change that by being inclusive and welcoming, not only to young people with additional needs that come and work and train as Team Members, but also to everyone in the wider community who comes to the café as customers.
We all need support and encouragement and the team are aiming to provide all of that as well as good food and refreshments at Lana’s Café
If you want to know more please ask Les or Anne and they’ll be happy to share their vision for Lana’s Café. They are also happy to welcome any volunteers who would like to help with the café, so please come and introduce yourselves if you are interested.
The café is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm and provides a range of hot drinks, home-made cakes and light lunches.
