FAIR SHOT CAFE WILL PROVIDE TRAINING FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES
The not-for-profit cafe will open this February, aiming to combat the 94% unemployment rate among adults with learning disabilities
Fair Shot is a registered UK charity that works to transform the lives of young adults with learning disabilities by equipping them with all the tools they need to enter the hospitality workforce. Founded by Bianca Tavella in 2019, the organisation runs a traineeship programme out of their cafe, which is followed up by an employment programme that connects their trainees with partners looking to employ them.
Since launching their first in-person Fair Shot Café on South Molton Street back in December 2021, they’ve supported 21 young adults out of the unemployment cycle with 100% of their job-ready graduates currently in employment. Now, it’s time for them to expand into a larger site, so they’re moving to The Yards in Covent Garden.
The new cafe, which will open soon on Slingsby Place, will offer a range of all-day dining options that’ll cater for dietary requirements. Expect the likes of overnight oats served with caramelised air-fried pear, sultanas & honey; portobello mushrooms on toast with creamed spinach; roasted beetroot salad with feta, radish & walnuts dressed in orange mustard sauce; focaccia; and toasties. And, of course, there’ll be coffee, so you can grab a speciality-grade latte too – drop by on the 1st or 4th of February to get yours for FREE.
