Community Hub

Re-Instate / Community Hub

Re-Instate’s community hub operates a number of activities for the benefit of people who use our services.

Basils’ (named after Basil Huett, the founder of Re-Instate) is Re-Instate’s five-star kitchen and refreshment area offering drinks and snacks to groups and people who use our facilities.

Basils’ is run by people who use our services. We offer work placements that include the opportunity to study for accredited qualifications in Safer Food Handling and Customer Service.

In April 2019, Re-Instate launched Spud Buddies, a pop-up food stall, offering healthy food to the local community.  Spud Buddies offers clients work experience in catering and customer care, preparing for open employment.

Re-Instate’s work experience is based at the community hub and can often be a first step towards people achieving work goals. The development of work and social skills help to build confidence, and are a stepping-stone towards wider engagement with the local community.

Whilst engaging with the work experience, people will be able to access appropriate courses to develop life skills.

Living Well run a barista training course where clients learn how to take orders, make and deliver them so they can add it to their skills and CV. 


Re-Instate welcomes volunteers. We have roles available in our community hub. Recent placements include nursing students wishing to gain experience in mental health or learning disabilities and young people on work experience. Re-Instate holds accreditation for working with young people on work experience aged 16-18. For further information please contact Zoe Sinclaire.
