Cooking Up Independence

Published | Feb 27, 2018 | IN BEST Community Shed

Cooking is a life skill every person should have the chance to learn and BEST Community Shed is proud to partner with Northaven Ltd to bring more independent skills to the Inverell community.

Through the BEST Community Shed funding program Northaven is able to purchase kitchen items to kick off their ‘Simply Cooking on a Budget’ Project.

“The funding will be going into a kitchen that we are setting up for people with a disabilities to teach them how to cook all sorts of simple meals that they can do from home. It will be better for their life skills and not spending so much on items that aren’t necessary.” Said Northaven General Manager, Tess Pomfrett.

 “We will have better skilled people with disabilities that can manage better in their own home and they can support themselves by getting jobs.”

“Our main priority in life is a roof over your head and food in your tummy and we can help them to learn to live a little bit more independently and cook for themselves.”

Northhaven aims to get the ‘Simply Cooking on a Budget’ program up and running by winter.

“We are so appreciative of the assistance.”
