The Plate-Up Project
offers a safe learning environment for people fleeing domestic violence and experiencing homelessness. Many women who experience domestic abuse are also victims of financial abuse, which keeps them trapped in a vicious cycle. We assist them while they gain new cooking, hospitality and employment skills in real-life environments with trained professionals.

Participants from previous Plate Up courses say that the benefits of the program prove to be life changing as it gives them something to look forward to and truly improves their chances of finding employment.

Contact us at any time via our Facebook page, or Email to discuss how you can help people rediscover their passion for food and hospitality while they learn essential employment skills.
