The Mandeville Street Restaurant, which trains young people with learning difficulties, is set to close this Saturday if funding isn’t found to keep it open.

It employs seven full-time and part-time staff, five of whom who are qualified assessors, and trains 17 young people in Level 1 Introduction to the Hospitality Industry.

Despite a number of meetings and support from the public and politicians, no resolution has yet been found.
