MILK is a social enterprise set up to empower and support refugee and migrant women living in Glasgow. We run a small cafe in the Southside of the city where we aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment that promotes integration between them and their new community.

We offer individuals valuable opportunities to gain appropriate skills, experience and confidence. While gaining work experience both within the cafe and in its related activities, individuals receive continuing support from us as they prepare for moving on to other mainstream settings.

Support includes help with English language, personal development, form filling and interview skills. The cafe trading environment offers a wide range of work experience and training including food preparation, customer service, health and hygiene, stock control and hospitality.

MILK not only provides work experience and training but also a variety of free classes and workshops which are open to all women in our community (and sometimes, where appropriate, men and children too). We also offer the space to other groups and individuals who share our values, and we are always delighted to work with new partners on new and exciting ideas.
