What a load of Scrap scheme is a European Social Fund project to help our members learn food skills, business skills, receive an education in economical shopping and an opportunity to work both as a team and individually. It also provides an opportunity to have peer to peer support.
Tereza and Kay run the sessions, and it’s incredibly inspiring hearing their passion about the value of learning cooking, home economics and independence skills. When I went down to see what happens at the Cook and Book I sincerely wished that I had joined something like this when I was younger.
Kay has also incorporated mindfulness into the work which adds another level to this incredible project. There are so many transferable skills involved in this course.
The members have used this time to come up with entrepreneurial ideas and have begun using critical thinking skills.
As a witness to the member’s progress it’s amazing seeing how much they have progressed with their skills.
They are assisted by Morgan, who runs the wake up shake up and admin to help Tereza and Kay.
