Our new cafe to be “officially” opened by Bishop of Worcester
Bishop John said  "YSS does wonderful work amongst some of the most vulnerable people in our society and this new initiative is a very exciting one.”

Our new cafe, which will provide training and employment opportunities for vulnerable people in Worcester, will be opened by the Bishop of Worcester, Dr. John Inge on Thursday 23 October.  Bishop John said “I feel very honoured to have been asked to open the Cafe. YSS does wonderful work amongst some of the most vulnerable people in our society and this new initiative is a very exciting one.”

The launch of Carden St. Cafe will be hosted by Lady McFarlane, Chair of YSS Trustees and will also be attended by the Mayor of Worcester, the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner and the Head of West Mercia Youth Offending Service, together with YSS Trustees and staff. The project would not have been possible without the support of The Drapers Charitable Fund, Big Helping, Jigsaw Tree Ltd and Lakeland (Hereford).

The social enterprise cafe owned by YSS is located just off City Walls Road in Worcester. It is designed to help YSS service users to develop their skills, knowledge and self-confidence to ultimately help them gain sustainable employment. The cafe is open weekdays, from 7.30am to 2.45pm and offers a range of freshly-made breakfasts, lunches, hot drinks and cakes to eat in or take away. The cafe also offers Free Wi-Fi. All profits will be reinvested in the project.

At the launch, there will be an opportunity for all guests to tour the YSS Training and Enterprise Centre adjacent to the Cafe to find out more about the work of YSS and to meet staff, volunteers and service users.  The YSS projects range from Criminal Justice, Worcestershire Young Carers to Social Enterprises. The Good Stuff Furniture project, which recently received support from West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner’s Grant,   is also situated at this venue. The furniture restoration involves re-cycling wooden furniture into “shabby chic” furniture for sale, and  gives the clients  the opportunity to learn the  skills involved in  preparing  and painting wood.
