WHO ARE WE?
Since 2010, homelessness has doubled in the UK. Now, over 4,000 people sleep rough every night.
Change Please believes that the nation’s love of coffee is so strong – it could be just what we need to end homelessness once and for all.
For each coffee sold, we provide training, financial and emotional support and employment for somebody affected by homelessness.
Starting with one coffee cart in Covent Garden, we’ve gone from strength to strength and shop to shop all whilst serving great tasting coffee.
