Why use us as a catering service?

Young people

Our cafe is a social enterprise operated by YMCA Newcastle. We believe every young person has the right to achieve their full potential. That is why all of our profits are reinvested into our work supporting young people in Newcastle.

50% of young people in Newcastle leave school without 5 A*-C grades at GCSE, with local youth unemployment varying between 20-25%. Our goal is to provide young people with the opportunities, resources and support they need to access further education, training and employment. Local community, our catering service, is operated from our 5 star hygiene rated community cafe and centre in Walker Park, a hub for the local area. Our catering service was originally established in 2011 by a group of young mums, the project allowed them to gain skills and qualifications that would allow them to get into employment. Two of the original young mums now work in our cafe! We can cater for whatever you are planning! Head over to our website to see some of our amazing testimonials!

Walker Park Catering provides a delightful & tasty buffet range. The service catered for our bespoke requirements without quibble & were a pleasure to work with - a very reliable/professional service at a very reasonable cost. I would have no hesitation in recommending this firm for any occasion to others!

Thanks to all the team for a wonderful buffet! I ordered a buffet for 20 people for my sons 10th birthday. It was delivered on time and was a bargain, they even included party bags for the kids which went down a treat. Will defo be ordering again.

Kaitlyn, kids party buffet for 20

It all went so smoothly. A member of the tram also rang me yesterday to check everything was ok. I really appreciated this, as I get very nervous before events (no matter how many times I do them) so it just put my mind at rest that everything was ok.
