Helping to combat homelessness with Change Please
In all our offices, studios, manufacturing sites and fulfilment centres in the UK, we serve Change Please coffee, meaning our staff are making a difference with every cup of coffee served in our cafes. Change Please is a social enterprise that helps people experiencing homelessness to get a fresh start with housing, training and onward opportunities.
The trainees are given access to employment in a Change Please cafe, gaining customer service and barista skills to SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) level, and receive a monthly Living Wage salary, clothes, therapy support, laundry and accommodation with their rent payments covered.
Within the first six months, our sales of Change Please coffee helped provide this support to five people experiencing homelessness and we are forecasted to support 10 people by the end of our first year.
