GO4  Café – the original social enterprise providing coffee and food with a conscience


• We believe in people

• We believe people have the right to live their lives to their full potential

• We believe everyone has the right to training and employment that provides them with the opportunities for personal and social development, as well as their economic well-being

• We believe in quality services that benefit the community as a whole whilst protecting the environment

We are now offering maths tutoring for free!

This will be happening at 1900 on Tuesday evenings, and is aimed at Secondary School (years 7-11). If you (or your children) have exams coming up and are feeling stressed, feel free to pop down and we are happy to help. It is only for a limited time so make sure you take advantage of it!

The tutoring is being run by one of our friends Tim, he has top grade further education mathematics qualifications and has worked as an instructor in the military.

Be there or be squared!
