Making a difference in our Community
We’ve recently moved into a shared office space in purpose-built premises at the heart of the area we serve. Ty Nant Ddu is a great facility, and we’re grateful for the flexibility this offers us.
It’s in an accessible location, and appointments can be made for one-to-one and group meetings with Hope GB. It’s also being actively used for our Support Group meetings.
We have big ambitions for Hope GB, but intend to stay true to our focus on supporting the families and carers of people with autism.
One of the progressive ways we’re aiming to do this is by designing and developing a bespoke community-based café as a social enterprise. We want this to provide a high quality learning experience for young people and young adults with autism, who are making their way in the world of work.
The idea is that we offer training and development in a real-life working café – with paying customers – which will help build social as well as technical skills.
People selected for the project will work towards a formal qualification. It’s an exciting project which will require a lot of investment, but directly tackles the issue of higher than average levels of unemployment for people with ASC. It should also create options for café graduates, giving them the experience that can be so hard to find.
