The Usual Place is a cafe that is based in an old church in the town of Dumfries. But it’s no ordinary cafe, you see The Usual Place gives young people with additional support needs and disabilities the chance of training and work opportunities in hospitality.
It is run day to day by a team of amazing staff members along side our growing band of volunteers there to give our trainees the support and encouragement they need.
Over seeing this shall we say is the board of directors made up of staff, volunteers, representatives of other disabled people’s organisations and me! I was voted as chair at our AGM in January 2015.
I describe it as a place I feel at home, where I can be myself and no one ever questions why I do certain things or ask certain question , they just know it’s Amy!
I am so very proud to be the Chair of this amazing cafe and I can’t wait to build on the memories of 2015 and make 2016 our year.
Miss Amy V Wright, Chair of Board of Directors
