Testimonials

The Social Space has been a dedicated, reliable and enduring employment partner of Bettr Barista’s social programmes since 2019. Instead of seeing the (beneficiaries') challenges as barriers...the Social Space team saw the potential in each of these individuals and set out...to bring the best out of their employees. It is without hesitation that I make this recommendation to such a deserving social enterprise.

Bett Barista

Although not the easy path, they invest time and energy in nurturing their team members whether their struggles are social or developmental. With all on their plate, the wonderful team still manages to take time to chat with customers! The Social Space is truly a gem and has done a commendable job weathering Covid-19 without compromising their values.

We decided to work with the enterprise as they held similar values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Integrity when working with our (special needs) students...for a five-month training attachment. This experience boosted our students' confidence in working and engaging themselves meaningfully in the community.

Our firm was assigned by raiSE to work with The Social Space...in 2020. During our project with them, you can tell how much Cheryl and Daniel care for the staff...it is never about profit first, but how care for the human person and profit can go hand-in-hand. Both founders are inspiring in this sense and I am pleased to endorse their work!

MINDSET is extremely grateful for the supportive partnership with The Social Space as they provided fair opportunities and granted interviews to all our beneficiaries. Our beneficiaries are performing well at their jobs and has in turn helped in their recovery process. With the support of The Social Space, we will continue to help more beneficiaries re-integrate back into society.

Founders Daniel and Cheryl have to be two of the most hardworking, humble individuals I've come across in Singapore, let alone in the social enterprise scene. Their commitment to inclusive employment and their patience with training, working with and nurturing the growth of individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds is commendable.
