Café Tiki is a small chain of cafes which work to increase work and training opportunities for local unemployed people with sight or hearing loss.
The three outlets, in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Falkirk, are run as social firms by the Royal National Institute of Blind People.
All the cafes are fully accessible and sell a range of speciality teas and coffees, hot and cold food.
The Glasgow outlet has several computers that are free to use, while the café situated in Forth Valley’s Sensory Centre has a large selection of large print and audio books displayed within the seating area.
The cafes work in partnership with independent coffee roaster Mathew Algie; Action on Hearing Loss Scotland, which represents people who are deaf or have hearing loss in Scotland; Cordia LLP, a facilities management and care provider; Glasgow City Council and Forth Valley Sensory Centre.
The cafes also support the work of RNIB across Scotland, who provide a series of rehabilitation services, provide advice on welfare benefits, facilitate resource centres and organise a wide range of leisure and social groups for people living with sight loss.
