Scott has been at Enham Trust for 6 months now, and has recently joined the Radio Enham team, which he enjoys a lot! But Scott was also looking for something different; an opportunity to develop his skills even further, and meet new people.

So, when he found out about the opportunity to help volunteer at the Enham Trust Café, Scott immediately put his name forwards for the role.

Scott tells all about how he’s enjoying most about his training so far:

“I heard about the Enham Trust Café opportunity, after looking for more things to do at Enham Trust that would suit me, and I knew this would be something made for me.

“Training at the café has been amazing so far. It has taught me so many skills; like using the equipment, and how to act in a customer-facing role, as I’ll be serving on the front desk. It’s also great for keeping me busy, and it’s something that I can really look forward to each day.

“I have met lots of new people, and will hopefully make some new friends during my time at the café. The accessible design of the kitchen also means I am able to navigate around in my wheelchair, and still make a selection of drinks, which makes me feel great!

“I will also be able to use the till, which is on a height adjustable unit, to serve the customers when they come in. I’m excited to start making the most of this great new café at Enham Trust.”

We would like to thank our funders for making the Enham Trust Café a reality; The Morrisons Foundation, Armed Forces Covenant Fund, The 29th May 1961 Charitable Trust, Compton Housing Association and Beaulieu Beaufort Foundation.
