Driving for Change is a ground-breaking initiative run by the Change Please Foundation. We take repurposed iconic London double decker buses to key London Boroughs to provide lifesaving and essential services to the most vulnerable. The services our guests have access to include an 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 have helped so many people through Driving for Change and had great success stories with our guests getting access to the vital help they needed, and then some joining the core Barista Training Programme and securing permanent work through our employment partners.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE HAVE BE ABLE TO PROVIDE…
