After spending lots of resources trying to find jobs for our participants… I decided “stuff it” why not create a supported environment for them? A workplace where everyone can learn, feel supported and (wait for it) GET EQUAL PAY.
And so, on Christmas Eve 2021 The first HappinessFirst – Coffee, Pantry & Gift Shop was born in Rosebud, Victoria.
We offer supported employment in coffee making, food handling, retail, stock ordering and control, customer service, gardening, handyman support, woodcrafts & so much more. You want a job in it, we’ll find the education/skills you need, the teachers to teach you, provide the support and even create the paid work opportunities for you. “This is the world I choose for all participants now and into the future, join us” – Founder Rose Farfalla MornPen local.
