Good Hope Cafés

Our Good Hope cafés are a beacon of what a community business should look and feel like, a haven of peace and safety.

Good Hope Hither Green opened 2010, as a way to make our charity’s work sustainable, while offering a community hub for the people of Hither Green. We later opened our second café in 2014, Ten Thousand Hands (now Good Hope Ladywell Fields) and in 2016 our third, Good Hope PLACE/Ladywell. Over the past six years, all three cafés have become a great tool for young people starting off their work life. We also partner with Drumbeat School and ASD Services to provide personalised placements for young people with Autism, enabling them to experience the workplace and acquire a range of essential skills.

All profits go towards For Jimmy’s work helping young people build Safe Havens across Lewisham.
