Leyhill Grounds Café was opened in July 2017 and is located just outside of the HMPPS Leyhill prison entrance. It is run as a social enterprise in order to provide day-release offenders with the opportunity to develop their skills in a work environment, with the goal of them becoming ‘employment-ready’ prior to release.
The café has a civilian, salaried manager who is responsible for the day-to-day operations. The role for the right volunteer will be to work in the enterprise on behalf of the manager, but very much operating along-side the offender cohort and being sensitive to providing opportunities for skills development.
