Claude’s named after Claude Johnson former Managing Director and often referred to as the hyphen in Rolls-Royce will be operated by YMCA Derbyshire’s Training & Education team.

Young people aged 16-18 (19-24 in some cases) will gain City & Guilds qualifications – Entry Three Introduction to the Hospitality Industry and Level One and Level Two Certificate in Culinary Skills. Through these courses learners will also improve their Maths and English, gain employability skills and valuable work experience within a busy café.

Claude’s will also enable our YMCA to offer Traineeships giving young people the structured work experience needed to move in to further employment.

Claude’s will be open to everyone within the local community Monday – Friday 8.30am – 3pm and will serve delicious breakfast and lunches along with snacks and hot drinks.

Reflective moments can be enjoyed in the outdoor seating and quiet areas, or customers can enjoy the main hustle and bustle at the front of the café.

Please see our menu’s below. We hope to see you at Claude’s soon!
