Proud to produce Braille menus for Cafe Sobar

Nottingham's alcohol-free bar, Cafe Sobar today revealed their braille and large print menus for local visually impaired customers after partnering up with My Sight Notts. 

Welcoming and inclustive

Jason Loftus, Restaurant Manager said “It’s always been a priority to do everything we can to ensure different communities within Nottingham feel welcomed and included here at Café Sobar” Jason reached out to our charity in a bid to launch a selection of menus at Café Sobar to help people within the community feel more relaxed and at ease and our transcription service, Touch Transcriptions, was only too happy wo work together to help create a more accessible Nottingham. 

Accessible to all 

Angela Phillips, Services Manager at My Sight Notts, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Cafe Sobar on the introduction of new Braille and large print menus. Cafe Sobar is a great community resource in the heart of the city and providing menus in Braille and large print will ensure it’s accessible to the visually impaired community too.

“As a local visual impairment charity that campaigns on eye health, it’s especially pleasing to be working with Cafe Sobar because you may not know that drinking too much alcohol can contribute to temporary and in extreme cases permanent sight loss known as toxic amblyopia, which is why we’d always encourage people to drink responsibly.”

Nottingham's diverse community

Since opening, Café Sobar has seen a rise in the diverse community and social groups visiting and using the facilities, it’s regularly used as a meeting spot/ social hub for a wide range of people across Nottingham. Sobar already provides a wide, diverse range of events to include a number of different communities such as #CuppaSocial the monthly social media drop in with Status Social and Tea & Tots - their monthly meet up for anyone who’s in charge of a child and/or baby, and after months of planning their latest social inclusion project has been revealed.

“It’s the perfect partnership” Rebecca Stonehouse of Café Sobar said “As a social enterprise ourselves, it’s important for us to partner with other local charities to work on important social issues across Nottingham”
