Fair Shot Café opens Mayfair flagship

Founder and CEO of Fair Shot Café, Bianca Tavella, set up the business to address the UK’s current 94% unemployment levels for young people with learning disabilities

Grosvenor Britain and Ireland has announced that social enterprise Fair Shot Café will open its first flagship venue serving European food and specialty coffee in Mayfair’s South Molton Street on 13 December.

Founder and CEO of Fair Shot Café, Bianca Tavella, set up the business to address the UK’s current 94% unemployment levels for young people with learning disabilities.

With Fair Shot, Tavella aims to “transform the lives of young adults with learning disabilities by helping them gain the skills needed to begin a career in hospitality”.

Fair Shot provides on-the-job training, places trainees in paid employment and partners with
employers to create more jobs for adults with learning disabilities.

Fair Shot added the Grosvenor lease enables the social enterprise to establish and provide “vital employment and life skills for its staff”.

Amelia Bright, executive director, said: “Workplaces need to embrace all kinds of diversity. We are delighted to work with organisations like Action on Disability and West London College in supporting Fair Shot’s vision to secure training and better employment
opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities.

“Fair Shot joins a growing number of conscious brands like Stephen Webster and Native at Browns in Mayfair providing ethical services and products. This is just one way we are driving sustainability and creating a positive impact in the West End.”
