Welcome to Café Track, breaking down barriers

Cafe Track isn’t your typical cafe; it’s a bustling hub pulsating with community support and empowerment, proudly helmed by Thomas Cliffe. More than just a spot for fantastic food and beverages, Cafe Track stands as a beacon, empowering autistic adults by providing them with pathways to meaningful employment.

Since its inception in 2018, Cafe Track has been a catalyst for change, facilitating employment for over 100 autistic adults while enlightening 200 businesses about creating autism-friendly workplaces. It’s more than a business; it’s a sanctuary celebrating individuality, priding itself on tailoring services to cater to each customer’s unique needs.

Stepping into Cafe Track transcends mere consumption; it’s an invitation to a space where patrons can relax in tranquillity or engage in heartwarming conversations with their welcoming staff and fellow visitors.

Beyond serving exceptional coffee and delectable meals, Cafe Track is deeply rooted in the local community. Born in Northampton, they stand firm in their commitment to support and champion local ventures, recognising that unity strengthens the essence of our town.

Their dedication to inclusivity is unwavering. As proud holders of ‘disability confident’ status, they collaborate with local and national businesses, offering comprehensive training on autism in the workplace, fostering an environment of inclusivity and support for all.

The ‘Friends of Cafe Track,’ local businesses rallying behind them, amplify their mission of empowerment and support in various ways, uniting everyone involved in a shared vision.

They were thrilled to have been honoured as part of Small Business Saturday’s SmallBiz100 in 2021, recognising their journey in supporting over 50 autistic adults into employment at the time and delighting numerous customers in Northampton. Tom Cliffe’s attendance at a special reception at the House of Lords, celebrating SmallBiz100’s achievements, was a testament to their dedication to their cause.

Beyond Small Business Saturday, they invite you to be a part of their community-focused space, where every purchase contributes to a greater purpose. Join the team at Cafe Track and experience the warmth of a place that values inclusivity, community, and the celebration of local businesses.
