Special needs cafes


All across the UK there are special needs cafes offering work experience and training to young people and adults with learning difficulties.

They provide the opportunity for individuals to gain skills and qualifications while working towards paid employment.

The cafes can be found at local colleges, libraries, art galleries, craft centres, parks, hospitals and town centres.  

They offer tea, coffee and a variety of snacks, cakes and meals.  Many provide high quality homemade products and even gluten free options.

The majority also seem to have accessible facilities making them an excellent choice for wheelchair users.

I’m sure you will agree with me that we should be supporting these cafes and shouting their success from the rooftops!

That’s why we have been collecting the details and adding them to a map that is easy to access from phones, tablets and computers.

If you know of any cafes or you would like to provide some more details for our visitors we would love to hear from you....
