Change Please coffee is ethically sourced using the highest quality beans to achieve the perfect taste. We reinvest the profits from the sale of our coffee to help people out of homelessness. Since 2010, homelessness has doubled in the UK. Now, over 4,000 people sleep rough every night. This is unacceptable. 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.
The average Londoner treats themselves to two cups every single day. Demand is rising – by the end of the decade the number of UK coffee outlets is set to hit 21,000, creating over 100,000 jobs. Despite this, the industry is facing a huge skills shortage, not just in the UK, but around the world. If the homeless community addressed this shortage - homelessness could become a thing of the past.
Change Please is empowering the homeless community by training them to be baristas. They provide full barista training, jobs paying London Living Wage and support with housing, bank accounts and mental wellbeing.
If we can just get a small proportion of coffee drinkers to simply change where they buy their coffee, we could really change the world.
