Urgent: foodies please get in touch!

Back on Track are looking for people with food skills to help run our catering social enterprise.

Since it launched just over a year ago the Swan Kitchens project has achieved an incredible amount.
The in-house cafe has sold thousands of low cost, healthy meals to people on low incomes, while the outside catering operation has fed 700 people. And it’s all staffed by people who are getting their lives back together after going through homelessness, addiction, offending and mental health problems. 


The cafe gives people the chance to get new skills and work experience, and more than a third of the volunteers have already moved into paid employment. And it’s ethical – the café uses salvaged and donated ingredients to reduce food waste, stocks Fairtrade products, and always has vegetarian and vegan options.

We now urgently need skilled volunteers to help us run the project.
Experience in catering and hospitality is preferred, but training will be provided. We need people who can offer at least one full day a week – you’ll be supporting people in the kitchen and helping to run the business side. We’re looking for people who want to use their skills, have fun and change the world a little bit at the same time! Sound like you? You can find out more at our special afternoon tea information session on Friday 10 March, from 1-3pm – cake will be served!

Or, if you can’t make that please email
