Clients and staff from Witmore Enterprises are thrilled to be taking on the lease of the Riverside Kiosk as a new training facility for people with a disability.
The kiosk officially reopened under their management on Monday January 13 with clients, staff and members of the community there to purchase a coffee, cake or ice cream.
"It's really exciting for all of us here at Witmore's, we already have a few clients eager to gain their barista certification to make coffees for our community," Witmore CEO Anita White told the Singleton Argus.
Witmore Enterprises aim to provide pathways for people with a disability to create independence and individual growth. One way they assist people to achieve this is through education and training and the kiosk is another additional avenue to achieve this.
"Recently we have conducted Certificate Three in Process Manufacturing with some of our supported employees in our workshop in Maison Dieu," she continued. "Here at the Riverside Kiosk we plan to conduct training in certificates and qualification in hospitality, retail sales and barista."
The kiosk will be open seven days a week operating between the hours of 9am and 4pm. "We are also hoping to begin coffee deliveries, where local business's around John Street can ring us up, order their coffees and we will deliver them ourselves!," she added. To call up and make a delivery order telephone 6512 6673.
The kiosk will also be selling:
- Cold drinks
- Sausage rolls
The team are still seeking employees to help with the new initiative.
"We are still seeking supported employees (must qualify for National Disability insurance scheme) to help us with our new project," she added.
