Coventry University

World on a plate project is focused on giving refugees and migrants living in Coventry the correct skills, knowledge and confidence to go into employment by running supper clubs and other events in which the refugees work and get paid for their work.

From our research we found that it is hugely difficult for refugees and migrants to find work within the UK. Our project aims to tackle this need by providing these two groups of people with meaningful temporary employment as a means to gain desirable skills for future permanent employment. Eventually we hope to establish a sustainable social enterprise in partnership with the Coventry migrant and refugee centre and the people who use their services.

What Global Goals are we working towards?

1 – No Poverty

4 – Quality Education

5 – Gender Equality

8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth

10 – Reduced Inequalities

11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities

How can you help us?

We are looking to connect with people within the food industry in Coventry- specifically anyone with access to a kitchen or anyone with experience that we can speak with about how best to set up our business model. We also require support in creating an effective marketing strategy that will enhance our ability in reaching our goals.
