The Usual Place
The social enterprise was to work as a community café which would provide training, education and employability skills for young people with additional support needs, who were previously invisible, excluded, at risk of isolation and loneliness and importantly, unable to fulfil their potential as valuable, active citizens contributing positively to their communities.
We focus on the promotion of the innate talents and capabilities of young people, enabling and empowering them to flourish, and challenging the established stereotype of young people with learning disabilities.
Based in a famous historic building in the heart of Dumfries, The Usual Place is an award-winning organisation, World Host Destination and a Disability Confident Leader.
Every area of The Usual Place is fully accessible.
