COFFEE THAT FUELS CHANGE

Founded in 2015, Change Please is an award-winning social enterprise tackling homelessness through the power of social enterprise and great tasting coffee. 100% of our profits help people experiencing homelessness through our Barista Training Programme. We train people experiencing homelessness to  become baristas and support them with everything they need to turn their lives  around – a living wage job, support with housing, therapy, bank account and onward employment opportunities.

Our impact work started in London with a single coffee cart in Covent Garden. This was followed by the opening of the Change Please training academy in Peckham, London, training to Speciality Coffee Association standards.

Today, we have grown to 10 coffee bars across London and have big plans to expand. We always push ourselves to find innovative solutions to address homelessness.

More recently, in 2021, we launched a new Impact Programmes called  Driving for  Change, which delivers vital services to the most vulnerable. The services our guests have access to include NHS and oral healthcare nurses, a hairdresser, social support, digital and financial literacy training and inclusion, financial advice, support with employment and much more.

We believe that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice taste to help give back and our coffee has won multiple awards, including nine highly coveted ‘Great Taste Awards’.

It all starts with a cup of coffee!
