The Silver Otter Cafe provides adults with learning difficulties/disabilities, mental health and other associated disabilities a safe, friendly, encouraging, supportive and innovative work preparation environment.
The Silver Otter cafe support individuals to learn work-based skills to enable them to progress onto paid employment. We are friendly, supportive and enthusiastic about personal progression but realise that everyone has their own personal goals, learning styles and pace of learning.
We focus on lifestyle, social independence and work skills but also improving mental health and confidence. Our teaching methods are fun, creative and innovative.
You will find a warm and welcoming environment in the heart of the community of Ottery St Mary. We support local events and other charities in the area. We often host conferences and cater for other businesses and we are popular with the locals as well as visitors.
The Silver Otter Cafe is part of able2achieve charitable trust and is the second café we have set up. The Winking Frog in Yeovil being our first.
Our mission statement “To enable personal achievement and progression by developing essential skills and self-confidence through learning, living and work”.
