The Compass Café is a community café based at the Lowestoft library offering work experience and learning to adults with a learning disability and or autism. We won the Catering & Hospitality category in the 2017 Suffolk Care Awards.
We offer placements for people to develop a work ethic and associated skills like timekeeping, personal presentation, working with people and being part of a team. This project offers learners a chance to work in the catering field both in the café and in the local Community Hub canteen where they cover all the aspects of catering preparing snacks and light meals. Learners are encouraged to participate in all aspects of catering through a series of five learning modules. Each module, when passed, will be certificated with a final completion certificate when all modules are successfully completed.
