Crime reduction cafe opens
The National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders (Nacro) has launched a new 'crime reduction cafe' in Poole, aimed at giving young people the skills and qualifications they need to stay out of trouble.
Nacro’s team manager for Bournemouth and Poole, Elspeth Gregson, said: “We are giving 14 to 19-year-olds the skills they need to enable them to go on and pursue a catering career.
Thanks to £30,000-worth of funding from Bournemouth and Poole councils, they can now prepare food in our new purpose-built kitchen and serve it in our cafe which is open to the public.
The new cafe called Five Four Three was officially opened by former Bournemouth mayor Ted Taylor who said: “I think it is fantastic that young people are being given these new opportunities.
Nacro works with young people before they get in trouble by helping them gain skills and qualifications. It also helps mentor those coming out of the justice system to get them back on track.
