Dartmouth Apprentice

Another inspirational organisation is the Dartmouth Apprentice. It was a pleasure to meet Nina Stanesby and many of the Apprentices at St Barnabus in Newcomen Rd. If you have not yet visited this restaurant, expect to be stunned by the interior and by the achievements of the Apprentices and guest artists. 100% of the restaurant's profits are reinvested to help unemployed people. In addition to a training centre and superb restaurant the centre also provides housing in 11 self contained flats supporting people who are homeless and who need a temporary residence whilst they find work. Few of the apprentices have ever worked successfully, many have left school without qualifications, experienced homelessness or been trapped in long term unemployment. Their achievements speak for themselves and the restaurant deserves its success.
