How Bexhill social enterprise Strive Café is helping to make a difference by employing people with learning disabilities.
There has been significant interest and support for the mission of Strive Café from specialists in disability and the general public, as well as excellent social media reviews (100% five star to date) on the café’s staff, ambience and food.
The mission of Strive Café is to enhance the lives of individuals with disability through purposeful paid employment in a quality and good-value café for customers.
Director Mary Briggs said: “We believe that adults with learning difficulty and disability deserve the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential and lead fulfilling lives. Our café wants to accelerate the availability of paid employment for individuals with additional needs. The ‘work empowering ability’ vision benefits from current national interest and commitment to increase disability employment opportunities.”
