Prudhoe Riverside Cafe

St Camillus Group, which provides job coaching and education to young people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health conditions, operates a cafe in Prudhoe’s Tyne Riverside Country Park.

St Camillus Group helps young people to learn within work environments, which are also commercial businesses with customers, and employment opportunities.

It was recently awarded a North East Equality Award for ‘Organisations Supporting People with Disabilities’ for the second consecutive year.

Holly Kelleher, head of learning and business development said: “Everybody comes down here to the riverside. You just have to stand here and look out of the window and you see people coming in their cars. Runners and cyclists and lots of people come down here for walks. As a cafe this could be the heart of the riverside.

“There are so few training opportunities for disabled people, it’s shocking. I think when you do something like this to give people training and work opportunities – getting them included in the workplace and in society – it breaks down those barriers.”
