Changing Lives One Coffee At A Time.
The Blue Tangerine Charity is a registered charity with the mission to change the perception of young people with Special Educational Needs, by providing them with transferrable and employable skills that will enable them to access opportunities once they enter our mainstream world. The Blue Tangerine Caf√© is a big part of this, ‚changing lives one coffee at a time.
‘The Blue Tangerine Cafe has made me feel like I can work in cafes and coffee shops once I leave school. I never thought this would be possible!‚Äù Pupil at The Blue Tangerine Federation
The Blue Tangerine Cafe© is a mobile cafe run by young people with a wide range of Special Educational Needs who attend one of the schools within The Blue Tangerine Federation. By supporting us, you are enabling our pupils with complex mental health and learning difficulties to thrive in our mainstream world.
Not only have we launched a mobile cafe run by the young people, but we have also created our own unique blends of teas, artisan coffees and luxury hot chocolates.
Originally only available via our online shop, they are now stocked in selected farm shops, garden centres and local businesses, due to the popularity and positive feedback of our uniquely blended products.
Since the launch of The Blue Tangerine Caf√©, our young people have been awarded their Level 1 Foundation Award in Barista Training and Safe Food Level 1 Hygiene training, with a few of our pupils going on to achieve their Level 2. On top of their accredited qualifications, their independence has grown, they have gained confidence in communicating with the general public and their maths skills have been reinforced through use of the till and money handling.
If you would like to the The Blue Tangerine Caf√© to come to you, please email one of the team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Or if you would like to enjoy our products at home, you can order via our¬† Online Shop.
