Tulip Cafe

The Tulip Cafe is a women only cafe based at The Dolphin Centre at Ward End Park. Open Monday to Friday, the cafe offers a fresh and tasty menu of refreshments, meals and snacks, and is also a welcoming space for women of all backgrounds and interests to socialise, make new friends, enjoy the lakeside view and learn about the what's on offer at the Dolphin Women's Centre.

Volunteering at Tulip Cafe

At the Tulip Cafe we offer a number of volunteering opportunities for local women looking to find work but perhaps have been busy bringing up a family and have lost their confidence or need help to update their skills. Volunteering helps women to build their confidence, gain practical work experience and develop friendships and a social support network within their local community.

"Volunteering at The Tulip Cafe gave me a chance to gain confidence in meeting new people and developing my skills in food hygiene, food preparation, money handling, serving customers, preparing day to day menus and cooking. You can give your time when it suits you which meant I could volunteer around my busy lifestyle due to being a single parent. Shortly after volunteering at Tulip Cafe, I was offered a part-time job that I really enjoy."
