Our café has been operating for 2 years, with the help of a restaurant group and Jami has now taken full operational control of the café. As a community café dedicated to both great food & drink and mental wellbeing groups and activities, the sustainability of the café will rely on goodwill and volunteers to ensure the smooth running and provision of events and groups.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to be café assistants at our Headroom Café in Golders Green, who would be able to greet and seat customers, explain the menu, take orders and process them through the till, serve food from the kitchen and give bills as well as take payments.
The role also involves engaging and interacting with our customers, helping to create a good atmosphere as well as promoting the work we do at Jami.
Jami was established in 1989 by parents, relatives and friends of people who live with mental illness. In 2013 Jami became responsible for the running of the community’s non-residential mental health provision, creating a single mental health service for the Jewish community in London and the South East. Working alongside statutory services, Jami is committed to supporting people to fulfil their potential, maximize their self-esteem and progress along their own unique pathway towards recovery. Jami’s focus is on recovery from mental illness. We support people at any point on their recovery journey, helping them to develop the skills to live life to the full.
Social enterprise at Jami
Social enterprise at Jami is an income generating division which also supports the training and development of service users. It is undergoing a period of considerable transformation and comprises a café/boutique in Golders Green as well as a Borehamwood warehouse with an eBay sales department, a reconditioned second-hand bike shop and upcycling workshops. Donations from members of the public come from across London and, where they have value, are sold via eBay to raise much needed funding for the charity or given a new lease if life by upcycling
