About this cause
We are situated within Four Seasons garden centre in Southport, providing a day service for adults with Learning difficulties, disabilities and additional needs. We are a non-profit, CIC organisation. We have a café with garden and small animal section, florist and gift shop open to the public and we support our service users to run these as their own business. On the premises we deliver tailor made courses appropriate to individual interests and ability levels, including training in floristry, horticulture, small animal care, hair dressing, IT work experience, catering and hospitality and customer service. Our provision is fully inclusive and support is tailored to individual needs and requirements. We provide a safe and varied work environment with close links to the local community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The aim of The Learning Rooms is inclusion for all & to break down barriers within the community. We have 3 existing groups who use Four Seasons for meetings. Local volunteers provide essential support. Once the cafe opens, we`ll provide catering services to local events. Our project will offer a welcoming, comfortable environment for our clients & community members to work, meet & socialise.
