A SCOTTISH social enterprise cafe and catering service offering training and work experience for people with learning difficulties has officially reopened its doors.

After extensive refurbishment, the Spoon Cafe, by Unity, is now up and running at the Trongate in Glasgow.

The cafe also runs a Pay it Forward scheme, where, thanks to the generosity of customers, people affected by poverty or homelessness can receive takeaway and sit in food at no cost.

They will work alongside the Spoon Café at Maryhill Burgh halls which caters for larger events, at competitive prices and with bespoke catering packages..

Unity CEO Emma Soanes said: “Unity is proud to bring you the Spoon at Trongate and Maryhill. We believe wholeheartedly in the social enterprise model and its potential.

“We are committed to offering whatever support we can to our fellow citizens who are disadvantaged, isolated or excluded.”
