Brigade restaurant changed my life around tremendously, as I was once homeless and attended the beyond food Foundation workshops. I completed my apprenticeship at the Brigade restaurant in 2012. I am 100% behind brigade as brigade was 100% their for me and others and continues to support those in need. Brigade equipped me with life skills as well as learning how to use a knife, they also gave me the confidence to find my way in society.
My mum, sister and brother used to live in the Old Fire Station in the 1950s long before The Brigade was even a twinkle in Simon’s eye. It’s good to see the old building helping to support people in need.
