Forks Cafe

Forks Cafe is the Bridge Project’s latest venture. Opened in October 2014, Forks offers delicious sandwiches, hot meals, coffee and freshly baked treats using locally sourced produce.

Forks is also a social enterprise that provides training and volunteering opportunities for those in recovery from drug or alcohol misuse.

Forks provides aspirational work experience and training through our academy, and gives those in recovery the opportunity to gain a formal certificate delivered in partnership with Forster Community College.

Our goal is to offer a future to people who want a hand up, not a hand out, by ensuring that we give them the best quality skills and experience to find sustainable employment in the future.

At Forks we believe in offering more than just outstanding food and service. We want to create an inspirational space where people meet, socialise, and experience the satisfaction of giving hope and opportunity to trainees working to achieve self sufficiency.

All of our profits go directly back into the community to fund ongoing support and to help many more people make a positive choice when they reach a difficult fork in the road.
