Story

Right Resolution CIC empowers, involves and develops the potential of children and young people that have previously been in care. Our service helps to increase the employment levels of young care leavers whilst boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
We reach out to care leavers by asking them what they would like to gain from the work experience and we will support them all the way through the process. Our experience of working with care leavers shows us that a high percentage of them suffer from trauma, social isolation, and low-self esteem or suffer from a mental health conditions. The project therefore caters for equality because it allows for participation where nobody is excluded from employment. We are in the development stage of creating a realistic workplace environment in the form of a community café, The Café will complement our existing service, which provides intensive support for care leavers who are NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) to identify their interests and engage them in learning activities and voluntary or paid employment. We recognise a gap and an opportunity: providing a nurturing environment where young people that are currently or have previously been in care can be introduced to the expectations of the workplace (punctuality, presentation, attitude to the workplace) without the risk of falling at the first hurdle and with the continuous support from a participation worker with whom they already have a relationship with. This will increase the success of the employment and learning which would be the next step. Care leavers will be involved in all aspects of the planning and running the café from being involved in the development work, fundraising, designing the café. Once the café is open the young people will have experience to learn about food preparation/stock control/ serving customers. The Young person will learn and achieve qualifications food hygiene and how to make healthy food choices.
