Ned and Saffs Café, Castlemaine
Ned was given an opportunity to work voluntarily at Saffs, a local Castlemaine Café 1 day a week for a year. He learnt front of house tasks, how to communicate with fellow team members and the public and work readiness skills such as arriving at work on time, hand hygiene, and making eye contact. He wasn’t paid so there was no cost to the café. They provided mentoring and support. Ned used his NDIS funds to set up and monitor the work experience placement.
