Board game cafe to equip autistic youngsters with work skills

Thu, 19 May 2016


Young people who suffer from autism will be given a helping hand to find employment thanks to a new board game café. 
 
'Boards and Brews' is the brainchild of Jenny Brew - it's due to open above the Rover's Return pub in Douglas. 
 
Three of her children have Autism Spectrum Disorder - she says from her experience people on the spectrum are often at a disadvantage when it comes to the world of work.
 
Work is underway to source the items needed to make the café a reality - Jenny says it's important that everyone can come together and connect in a fun and comfortable setting:
