A wee bit about our project…
The TinCat is a Social Enterprise company set up to empower and promote the integration of refugee and migrant women who live in Glasgow.
This is the TinCat’s first project – MILK – a cafe that provides a safe, supportive environment where refugee and migrant women in the Glasgow community can receive employability support.
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 sales and marketing, customer service, stock control, health and safety, hospitality and IT.
MILK is also used by various local groups and individuals for meetings, talks and pop-up events; we’re really happy to see the cafe becoming a valuable community resource.
