Client Success Story: Marley

Marley is on a Supported Internship Placement at Cottage Café in Ludlow, not far from where he lives. Because he is interested in different work areas, catering was chosen as a good starting point for a Placement.

The Cottage Café staff welcomed Marley and he quickly felt at home. Since starting in September 2019, Marley has been happy to start with the basics and taken charge of the “dishwasher room.” The Placement started with him  learning the daily routines as well as keeping things clean and tidy.

Currently, Marley is in charge of loading and unloading the dishwasher, making sure all items are rinsed first so the dishwasher keeps clean inside. Very willing and thorough, Marley helps to keep important areas clean including customer areas. Gill, the owner, says at the end of a shift Marley’s area is “spotless”.

Marley is developing a good working relationship with his other members of staff.

Marley is beginning to take food orders from the kitchen to waiting staff and has done a little food preparation. He is happy in the kitchen and says he would rather be busy.

Lately, Marley has successfully achieved Level 2 on the Jamie Oliver Home Cooking Course, at Bettws Lifehouse School.

Well done Marley for making a good start.
