The Inca Town Council has given this space to the SI Cooperative to develop an employment integration project.
The premises, at the service of the community, consists of a cafeteria, a bakery and a small shop with local products.
This week INCAFÉ opened its doors in the Fernández Cela neighbourhood of Inca. A new social establishment managed by the Cooperativa de Iniciativa Social (Cooperativa SI), with the aim of developing a project of labour insertion and social revitalisation in the neighbourhood. Cooperativa SI is a non-profit organisation whose general objective is to help people who are dependent or have some kind of disability and to facilitate their social and work integration.
Therefore, in order to carry out this project, the Inca City Council ceded the premises to the association to take advantage of synergies and define together a space for the benefit of the neighbourhood and the community. “INCAFÉ was born out of the demand for a recreational space in the Fernández Cela neighbourhood and the work of the SI Cooperative to promote social and labour insertion,” explains the councillor for Citizen Participation and Organisations, Andreu Caballero.
For his part, Mayor Virgilio Moreno stresses that “it is a pleasure to work alongside social entities with a great vocation. Thanks to this alliance, we can keep the premises open to revitalise the neighbourhood and facilitate the employment of people with special needs”.
During the first few weeks, INCAFÉ will be open from Monday to Sunday from 8 am to 8 pm. The premises offer a cafeteria service, a bakery and a small local shop.
