Some words from our customers...

I started training at Café Goodman in May 2015, later gaining employment as a result but decided to come back as a volunteer one day a week because I want to assist others on their journey.

Whilst at Café Goodman I learnt skills in money handling, catering and customer service. All the things I enjoy in life that make me happy.
