Changing Perceptions Unlocking Potential
Pulp Friction CIC is a social enterprise that works with people who have learning disabilities and/or Autism to develop their social independence and work-readiness skills.
Community Support & Networking
We believe that community engagement is vital to all of us. We connect with enterprises across Nottinghamshire and beyond to create a positive network of support.
It all started in 2009...
Where are we now?
Education & Qualifications.
Our Catering Team
At HQ members work on several different catering skills including chopping, peeling, making sandwiches, side salads, baking and many more. Members also work on cleaning jobs including using the dishwasher and wiping down surfaces.
Key roles in the catering team include making lunch for all members who are present that day (unless they have brought their lunch), making customers’ orders and making meals and cakes for orders outside of the canteen.
Members get to improve their customer service skills working with customers and other members and staff in the canteen. Members work on these practical skills when working in the Catering Team.
Grow & Learn Team
Alongside work in the kitchen, we have the Grow and Learn Team. Members in this group participate in workshops and activities based on food hygiene and food safety to ensure everyone has the correct knowledge to work safely in the Catering Team.
The Grow and Learn team also support our members to develop additional skills outside of those developed in the kitchen. Members get to do gardening, arts and crafts, walks, topical workshops, and exercise workshops alongside other opportunities too.
At present we have 40+ members who attend Pulp Friction weekly, we have space on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. If you are interested in joining us on a Monday or Tuesday, you can be placed on our waiting list. We are now able to offer more places everyday!
