We are very pleased to announce that our social enterprise cafe, Cafe Artysans will re-open on Monday 20th of July 2020 following its closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On on our re-opening we will be doing what we exist for, providing good food for our customers and enabling young people in the Highlands to have a better future.
We know that disadvantaged and vulnerable young people are likely to be among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis, with a rise in reported mental health issues and youth unemployment (UK Youth, 2020).
Every penny made at Cafe Artysans is used to improve the life chances of young people in the Highlands for whom we anticipate finding employment will be much harder during and post COVID-19.
At Cafe Artysans we provide experience in a real catering and retail business, covering kitchen, front of house and retail duties, engaging with real customers and operating to high quality industry standards. The skills that young people learn at Cafe Artysans will prepare them to work in any business.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Cafe Artysans.
