Weʼve raised £4,445 to help with set up and development costs for a new cafe in Bexhill-on-Sea providing paid employment to adults with learning disability.
- Funded on Tuesday, 30th June 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Strive Cafe opened in Bexhill-on-Sea in early December 2019. The cafe provides paid employment to individuals with learning disability alongside offering a first-rate customer café experience and promoting positive values towards disability.
We believe that adults with learning difficulty and disability deserve the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential and lead fulfilling lives. The staff with learning disability are at the heart of everything. In all respects the café is designed around the staff and to meet their individual needs.
Strive Cafe opened in December 2019 offering a warm welcome and delicious food. 100% of reviews are Five Star to date with positive comments on the staff, food, venue and vision. The cafe and one of our learning disability assistants featured on ITV news! We now employ 5 staff with additional needs, and within a month have been approached by more than 30 local individuals with learning disability requesting a job.
To provide more disability employment opportunities, the next step is to develop the facilities. We are raising funds to refurbish the two further rooms, courtyard and toilet. Development plans will increase seating capacity allowing more customers and enabling us to host functions and become a hub for the community.
100% of funds raised will be spent on renovating the facilities that have excellent potential but require electricity, flooring and redecoration. We also welcome good quality 2nd hand equipment.
