Bubble Enterprises Community Interest Company was founded to create opportunities for individuals who have had ‘mental health’ issues and to use enterprise as a means of recovery and achieving social inclusion.
A particular ‘outworking’ of this has been the creation of employment and volunteering opportunities within ‘cafe’ settings. This provides an environment that offers significant social interaction, stimulation and an opportunity for many to have a focus and purpose to their daily routines.
This has led Bubble Enterprises to be engaged in multiple cafe operations building up a ‘bank’ of design, planning and operational procedures that translate into ‘real’ trading companies.
Bubble have been involved in setting up multiple cafe’s in partnership with various institutions and still operate several today.
Most notably the ‘Oasis’ Cafe in conjunction with Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and Pennine Mental Health Trust, and Cafe 144 in Stockport.
If you wish to leverage this knowledge of planning, implementing and operating cafes please do get in touch.
