What if your morning coffee could change lives?
With the support and power of The Big Issue, we have empowered homeless people with the skills, equipment and speciality beans they need to become fully-fledged baristas.
By providing professional training and support with housing and bank accounts, we give those in need an opportunity to turn their lives around.
So they can serve coffee that tastes good, and does good too.
Our speciality coffee is produced by Old Spike Roastery in Peckham, London. Old Spike is our original social enterprise that forms the backbone of the Change Please project by supplying our baristas with the best coffee in London.
Our beans are rotated frequently based on the coffee growing season. To see our offerings and and buy coffee for your home or business please visit the Shop
We have just celebrated our one year anniversary and received the SEUK ‘one-to-watch’ award. We have a number of carts around London including Borough Market, Canary Wharf and The Shard, all staffed by formerly homeless people. We have also expanded into providing our services for festivals, corporate functions and other events around the London area.
We are always on the lookout for new sites and are developing expansion plans to the UK and beyond!
