Urimbirra Cafe Project-Stage 1
All things are possible when a community unites and believes in their ability!
Total funding requested
How will funding be spent?
Funding will be used for the purchase of commercial cooking equipment to ensure that the proposed Stage 1 of the Urimbirra Café Project - kitchen upgrade meets all health and safety requirements and will provide a well designed, efficient work environment. DOME's employees, volunteers and our Hospitality Training School students who may have a range of specific needs, are all our top priority.
How will the project be delivered?
DOME proposes to lease the kitchen and café, outdoor eating area and playground from the owners of Urimbirra Wildlife Park for the purpose of developing our social enterprise model. A site visit from the manager of Workskil's Work for the Dole program resulting in negotiations for work teams to assist in the renovations of the kitchen/pantry, café area & toilets, outdoor eating area and playground. If approved, this would become an integral part of Stage 1 of the project.
How will the project benefit the region?
The funds for the purchase of cooking equipment would enable DOME to complete Stage 1 of the proposed Urimbirra Café Project. Stage 2 - recruiting qualified/experienced staff who will provide a unique café experience to the 30,000 visitors who enjoy the Urimbirra Wildlife Park annually. Stage 3 - The Hospitality Training School would provide employment opportunities for disadvantaged jobseekers - people with disabilities, indigenous people, youth and mature age in our Fleurieu region.
