We are currently planning to open a cafe in Bideford that will support adults with learning and physical disabilities, offering them the opportunity to gain qualifications and to support them towards employment in catering and customer care
Jobs, Internships, Training & Employment
We are working with Petroc to enable The Northam Care Trust to become a training provider for people with a disability, leading to a year long training/work experience placement in The Northam Care Trust's services iincluding the cafe in Bideford. Helping people with learning disabilities into real jobs is part of our core mission
Working with Carers, Parents & Families
We aim to assist carers, parents and families of people we support in our services but also to play a role in supporting carers groups and individuals across North Devon. We hold regular meetings and support groups where we offer advice and develop plans for working together on local and more national policy issues.
We recognise our responsibilities by distributing regular updates on our services and include carers in our Organisational Excellence-Values and Behaviours policy.
