Catering by Churchill has announced a new partnership with Change Please, a social enterprise that takes homeless people of the streets of London and turns them into baristas.

Set up in 2015, Change Please provides London’s homeless with housing, training and support while paying them the London Living Wage of £9.15 an hour.

The coffee, produced by Old Spike Roastery in Peckham, south London, has been served at events such as Amazon’s Summer Party and the Brit Awards, and has recently launched in Sainsbury's.

The Hertfordshire-based caterer will serve coffee at Change Please branded outlets at Capital City College Group, Westminster Kingsway college, City and Islington College and Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Southall (West London) Colleges.

Rebecca Bridgement, Catering by Churchill managing director, said: “Our respect for Change Please, in its purpose, its clarity of business model, its success and indeed, its product could not be higher.”

Cemal Ezel, Founder of Change Please added: “The partnership with Churchill will help Change Please and Old Spike lift more people out of homelessness.”

Catering by Churchill is part of facilities managment provider, Churchill Contract Services.
