Cups & Co.
Cups & Co is our latest project currently in process. The coffee shop will increase and diversify the number of overall trainee places that we currently provide in our shop, church-based café and gardening team as well as extending choices for our young people. The success of the shop coupled with the excellent community response led the trustees to look for a café in Dorking (building on our experience of running a part time café in a Christian centre) to provide more work experience opportunities for our trainees.
ALDAG’s supported employment provisions all aim to provide an employment pathway leading to paid work in the community through real work in the young people’s community as well as longer term voluntary employment for some of our young people.
