Pulp Friction provides support for adults with learning difficulties and/or autism to gain social, independence and work-readiness skills. We use a holistic approach to help individuals master a number of new skills in a learning style that best suits each individual. We aim to help every member of Pulp Friction reach their full potential, recognise their strengths and areas which may require work.

Pulp Friction’s key goals are to help improve the well-being and day to day lives of its members with a long-term goal to enter the world of employment and independent living.

At Pulp Friction our key focus is to support adults with learning disabilities and/or autism, while we help them develop:




Members spend their day in a working canteen and cafe where they help prepare food and provide a daily lunchtime catering service at:

  • Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service HQ Canteen
  • NFRS Service Development Centre, Ollerton
  • National Justice Museum Cafe

They also regularly prepare and deliver buffets to different events and training venues.

We also take our smoothie bikes and Ice Cream Bike to different community events – schools, youth clubs, playschemes, community festivals and much more across Nottinghamshire and further afield.

This Project recruits people with and without learning disabilities to work alongside each other and learn together. Volunteers earn “training points” each time they volunteer with us and this entitles them to free training in Basic Food Hygiene, First Aid and Customer Service training. Volunteers can also access further training through Nottinghamshire Clubs for Young People to whom we are affiliated.

Social EventsDance: We have partnered with Dance Syndrome. Dance Syndrome provides training for individuals with learning difficulties and/or autism to become dance leaders. Dance sessions are co-delivered by a paired professional and trained dance leader.

Choir: The Atmosphere Glee Choir was first set up in 2010. it is a mixed ability/age choir and we have a professional choir leader and voice coach. When teaching songs to the choir our choir leader uses the natural voice technique, she will sing a line to choir members, who then sing it back to her.
