Creating opportunities at the Te Tuhi café

Creating opportunities at the Te Tuhi café9 Feb 2021

Te Tuhi’s café is Aotearoa’s first training café for people with intellectual disabilities, run in partnership with Rescare Homes Trust and the University of Auckland.

The café is situated in Pakuranga’s Te Tuhi Art Gallery and provides an essential service for its many community groups and gallery visitors.

The café project provides in-house training and supported paid employment for people with intellectual disabilities and is designed to provide the trainees with a supportive environment to expand their hospitality experience with an aim to finding open employment.

Like Te Tuhi we believe that the café is a prime opportunity for people with disabilities to learn new skills in a supportive environment and removing those barriers to work.
