Coffee Shop Creates Work for Young People with ADHD

post-image

Janet Cunningham, who was diagnosed with ADHD at age 37, has set up the ADHD Hub Coffee Shop and Info Point to tackle stigma about the condition in Newcastle, UK.

The coffee shop serves as a training ground for kids and young adults with ADHD to learn important skills related to the workplace. 

Janet said the shop was designed to give kids "freedom to be themselves". "The kids get a sense of pride of having something to look forward to coming into the shop."

Please note this appears to be from Southeast of Belfast, in South Down in Northern Ireland, not one of the many scores in the British isles, including Tyne, Wear and Lyme in English NE alone.
