Rooftop Support and Care have been making young people’s lives tastier thanks to Nando's in Gloucester, and they haven’t even tried cooking Galinha à Africana (Piri piri to you and me).

Nando's donated their extra chicken to help young people in Gloucestershire come together, share good food, and learn new skills.


It all started with an Indian night where fresh food was prepared by the young people who use Rooftop Support and Care services in Gloucester, Tewkesbury and The Forest of Dean. It was a challenging menu with lots of complex authentic dishes, using ingredients that the young people hadn’t heard of or seen before let alone handled and cooked with.

Next came the Mexican night, with simple food and great conversation.

Rooftop Support and Care is a voluntary organisation that works across the counties of Gloucestershire and Worcestershire to house and support young people between the ages of 16 and 25 and older people aged 55+.
