The Cooks Workshop Update: Cheated, but not defeated!

Sadly, I have had to make the decision to close down my cooking classes at The Cooks Workshop and give up my premises.
Who knows where the future lies, and hopefully we can get going again somewhere less costly.
Meanwhile, I will continue to develop cooking and nutrition programmes that can be implemented in the disabilities sector and hopefully create positive change and make a difference. If you know anyone that could use these services don’t hesitate to get in touch.

A COOKING & NUTRITION EDUCATION PROGRAM

With the presence of chronic health issues in our community, it is an important responsibility for care organisations to provide a healthy lifestyle including education in healthy eating and the provision of healthy meal choices.

People with a disability, living with family or in shared living and group homes, have similar chronic health issues as those in the broader community. For example, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol and mental illness – Many participants have additional complexities due to their intellectual and physical disabilities.

The Cooks Workshop shares their passion for teaching people how to cook for health and particularly to address chronic health issues in our community. We are leading the way in providing a consistent approach to healthy eating for people with a disability.

Empowering people through cooking workshops is in line with The National Disability Strategy Consultation Report, prepared by the National People with Disabilities and Carer Council. It calls for strategies to increase the social, economic and cultural participation of people with disabilities, ensure adequate funding and reduced discrimination.

Implementing the Cooking for Life Programme, is NADO Disability Services

“There are very few examples of how organisations like NADO are effectively maintaining a culture of healthy food choices in a community setting. We endorse a system of staff development that encourages participants toward healthy choices so that change is not imposed but made at an individual level and we are confident of the ability of our staff to adapt in ways that will continuously improve the lives of others in our care. We see Cooking for Life as an important training and development program for our team.”
