One of Northern Ireland's leading social enterprise companies, which specialises in finding employment for people with disabilities and long-term conditions, has opened two new cafes.

Ulster Supported Employment Ltd (Usel), which found employment for 900 people last year, has launched Ability cafes at the new acute mental health inpatient centre in Belfast City Hospital and the Drawbridge Cafe at the Ecos centre in Ballymena.

The opening of the two cafes has resulted in the creation of 20 extra jobs along with training opportunities.
