Access Hospitality at Seacroft Grange
With the help of local social enterprise ‘Access Hospitality,’ Seacroft Grange’s popular Bistro Café in now reopen!
Access Hospitality help individuals with learning difficulties to work successfully in long-term employment with the use of assistive technology. At Seacroft Grange, we’re proud to employ Megna to supply our residents, professionals and visitors with all their coffee desires.
Nigel Cork, CEO with Megna, Seacroft Grange’s newest recruit
Nigel Cork, CEO at Access Hospitality said “The gap between the skills required to successfully perform a job role and the skills of an individual with learning difficulties, is usually filled by another individual in a supporting/shadowing role. For most organizations, this is not economically viable on an ongoing basis.
Our technology fills this gap. Our technology and training allows individuals to consistently perform to acceptable (and beyond) standards and the ability to work independently.
The technology uses symbols and images that relate to visual cues in the environment to help break down the process of making coffee (and other beverages).
Access Hospitality was set up in January 2017 and is run as a ‘not for profit’ Community Interest Company (CIC) with the purpose of helping individuals transform their lives via employment.”
