Catering Services at Dove Court, Bradford for Hanover Housing Association
Hanover is the leading provider of Extra Care Housing and has considerable experience of providing catering / restaurant facilities within its schemes nationally.
Catering is a key part of the Extra Care model and enables residents to benefit from receiving a well balanced and nutritious diet where they have high levels of choice, but also encourages residents to socialise within the scheme and benefit from associated interaction.
We have been providing catering services within the majority of our developments for over fifteen years (mainly as a condition of tenancy within the service charge). During this time we have gained expertise in the area and also significantly developed the level of service offered to our residents.
Whilst the catering service is predominately based around a lunch time service, additional services are also required such as breakfast or buffets and / or corporate catering services.
Dove Court was built within the heart of a vibrant city with a demographic of 28% from BME community from a population of 550,000. The scheme has two kitchens especially designed to accommodate the cultural and religious beliefs and requirements of the local South East Asian community.
Within this tender process, Hanover will be exploring innovative ways of working, utilising the existing facilities.
