All are welcome to join us every Monday from 1.30pm – 4.30pm for our Build Grow Cook vocational group.

Build – Grow – Cook is designed to provide access to opportunities for developing skills, self confidence, resilience and experience and we hope that by joining in this group members will gain the support and skills to take that next step whether it be paid work, further study or a new voluntary job.

Soup making in our Cook group

At Build – Grow – Cook, we split into three groups: you’ll be able to join in baking or on soup making for our café in our Cook group, simple and fun building projects for our Social Enterprise in our Build group or help maintain our sensory garden at our Grow group.

We hold vocational training sessions once per month – so far we’ve covered topics such as Dealing with Conflict, Communication Skills, Dietary Requirements and Confidentiality. Participants get a certificate of attendance for their CV for participating in these too!

Support is also available in gaining computer skills, career planning, developing your CV and preparing for interviews.

Call Belinda on 01202 771336 for more info.

Please note that this group is temporarily suspended due to Covid-19. Watch our social media channels for news on our return.

Our Build team constructing a frame

“Build-Grow-Cook has actually really helped me…Now I have been coming for a while, I have gotten to know people and I really enjoy the cooking sessions, especially the baking. I’m a different person, you wouldn’t recognise me. I am confident and am happy within the group and am learning skills each week. I’m even cooking a little more at home.”
