Norwich for Jobs was pleased to present KindaKafe with their Silver award for their work with supporting young people. The KindaKafe is a community cafe and events venue owned by the Missing Kind charity. KindaKafe offers supportive work placements for young people facing barriers to gaining employment. In 2018, over 30 young people and young adults participated in work placements where they gained confidence and work skills by volunteering in the cafe and supporting events. It is currently developing plans to launch an advanced training programme providing targeted, one to one support to young adults to help them develop employability skills and play an active part in their community.
