Our Good Hope cafés are beacons of what a great community business should look and feel like
“Since starting my placement at Good Hope café, I’m more confident. When I first started I was shy and really didn’t want to talk to anyone. I didn’t even want to speak to staff in the office.”
David – Barista
Along with delicious food and drink they offer an amazing opportunity to provide training and employment to young people who might otherwise find the workplace challenging or stressful. We particularly welcome young people with mild to moderate long-term health conditions/learning disabilities (principally ASD), to move toward and into work. We also encourage applications from young adults who experience additional disadvantages, e.g. chaotic home lives, housing issues, involvement with the criminal justice system, or claimants of Jobseekers Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance or Universal Credit.
Our training cafés are all based in London, SE13
Whilst each training programme is tailored to your individual needs, you will likely be with us for four weeks straight or once per week over a longer period. Some of the key learning outcomes include; certified barista training and Level 2 food hygiene certificate, coaching in CV writing and interview skills & techniques, social skills and interaction mentoring.
