Team Domenica is a three-tier operation focusing on our employment programmes.
Team Domenica's unique set up
We create futures through our unique three-tier setup of our Team Domenica Training Centre, Training Cafés (Café Domenica) and Employment Centre.

Our training centre provides the educational component of our employment programmes. This includes accredited qualifications in workplace skills, numeracy and literacy.
In this bespoke setting, candidate’s receive mentoring sessions, create a CV and train in key skills such as money-handling, communication and customer service. We also offer RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) sessions, with the aim of giving our young people the knowledge and understanding to live confident, healthy and independent lives.
As part of their training, candidates complete three, seven-week placements in addition to a supported internship. These experiences allow our young people to learn what roles inspire them, whilst also developing their learning. The ultimate goal of these placements is for our candidates to gain paid employment.
Team Domenica’s employment centre oversees every aspect of our placements, establishing mutually-beneficial opportunities for candidates and employers alike. To achieve this, they manage our experienced band of job coaches; create and maintain thoughtful partnerships with local companies and consider a candidate’s aspirations when finding their ideal placement.

With four locations across Brighton & Hove, our training cafés create a sense of community by bringing people together, showcasing our candidates’ talents and challenging society’s misconceptions about learning disabilities – something we feel very proud of.
Our young people are centrally involved in the running of Café Domenica and our coffee roastery. These in-house work placements provide the perfect opportunity for candidates to learn new skills in a real work environment.
