Cafe to end homelessness
Café from Crisis works to end homelessness through practical hospitality training whist serving fresh and socially conscious food and coffee in our bustling cafés.
Through technical training such as kitchen craft and barista skills, members can gain qualifications and confidence in a public facing environment where they are supported on their journey out of homelessness. We give trainees practical skills, refreshed confidence and the industry knowledge to equip them for future opportunities. Meanwhile, our customers eat and drink with us knowing that every purchase they make will help end homelessness.
Crisis has partnered with Volcano Coffee Works to create an ethically sourced and unique coffee to be sold in cafés and shops across the UK. The partnership will also provide an extension of our retail and café traineeship that offers employment training and opportunities to our members to help them into work.
Crisis Coffee is sold in each of our cafes, through high street and online retailers to raise vital funds for our work. We hope that supporters and partners of Crisis will purchase the coffee and help do a little good whilst drinking a brew.
