About 4 Eden Projects

Here at 4Eden we create opportunities for young people and adults to explore their interests, build their skills and confidence and be a valued part of our local community. Through our projects we aim to reduce the support on paid services and increase opportunities to get involved in various groups, clubs, and volunteering.

BakeIT is based in our day services, basic cooking skills, food hygiene and testing out menus thereby improving cooking skills to adults with a view to moving on to real work.

UdoIT enables working towards and maintaining greater independence skills, trying new opportunities and working together with others in a social setting.

GrowIT develops their gardening skills and knowledge, using our own allotment. We also support the students to use these skills within the 4Eden garden and their local community.

Working in partnership with the Cumbria NHS Trust we operate a successful work-placement opportunity for students moving on from bakeIT into a structured real working café.

Covering the full spectrum of a busy café.

Front of house service: serving hot and cold beverages, cakes, scones and taking orders. Learning how to communicate effectively and building up self-confidence.
Kitchen: food preparation, food hygiene regulations, menu planning, using recipes, interacting with peers. Cleaning, using an industrial dishwasher and a variety of commercial equipment, operating correctly and observing health & safety.
Finding their niche within the kitchen environment.
Learning skills in preparation for employment.

Our new addition! Our café at Brougham Hall is open to the public and is our first venture into providing our own employment for those we support.

Fully operational 7 days a week and special events days make this the perfect opportunity for a paid job.

Working with people and local employer’s mentoring through a project developing their employability skills, setting up work placements, supporting the placement and moving on to paid employment.
