Café Artysans is a joint venture between the Calman Trust and Albyn Housing Association - offering opportunities to disadvantaged young people to train alongside professionals from the hospitality business. The Café opened last year and, soon after, won the Highland and Islands Food and Drink Award for Innovation.
The Café is located in the centre of Inverness and as well as the usual Café services it also provides an outside catering service.
The Calman Trust is a service for young people in the Highlands who are leaving home and moving on.
Young people can approach Calman for 1-1 support with their housing needs; advice and information on leaving home or housing issues; to improve their literacy skills; or to join in various training activities as preparation for work.
Calman has become an organisation that reaches out to involve the whole community in serving the needs of young people in this area.
It aims to raise awareness of youth homelessness and to involve young people in all that it does and enable them to share their stories and experiences and be heard - for their own benefit and also for the benefit of others.
As part of its training service, Calman manages Café Artysans and its outside catering company.eas
