CAIS Social Enterprises

Building sound business through self-belief

Our award-winning social businesses deliver the highest quality service alongside the practical training required to help people furthest from the jobs market into rewarding and sustained employment.

Branches of Porter's Coffee Shop in Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and Cardiff, Troop Cafe in Llandudno, and Colwyn Bay meeting and events venue Station Court all offer opportunities for on-the-job training, work experience, accredited qualifications, and more.

Our employment interventions and hands-on support programmes provide structured help, allowing people to develop confidence, prepare for interviews and get ready for work.

So far, we've worked with more than 100 people — helping them collect 200 qualifications, and assisting dozens into new jobs.
