The project provides the opportunity for adults with a learning disability to learn skills which will also help them throughout their life. Each person has a personal plan, showing their goals and targets, which is used to track their progress and development.
The Merton Mencap Café was audited against the Food Hygiene Star Rating system, commonly known as "scores on the doors", which is run in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency. The audit provides information to the public about hygiene standards in food businesses, using a star rating system from 0 to 5 stars.
Following their inspection by LBM environmental health, our café scored 5 stars – the highest possible.
