The Clink Charity has announced that it is launching a new café in the heart of Manchester, The Clink Café. Set in the Grade II listed Canada House it plans to offer local businesses and shoppers a place to stop for lunch or coffee.

Following the success of the four Clink Restaurants, the new café will continue the work the charity does in the rehabilitation of offenders.

It will focus on training Clink graduates and homeless clients of the Centrepoint Charity to gain their accredited City and Guilds NVQ level 2 in Food and Beverage Service as well as barista skills.

Chris Moore, chief executive of The Clink Charity, said: “We are delighted to be opening The Clink Café and to be partnering with a landlord like LJ Real Estate, which shares our values.

“Our Clink restaurants have proved incredibly successful and the café will give us the opportunity to continue the training and provide our graduates with the chance to achieve their full potential.

“Working with Centrepoint, as we do with Clink Events, allows us to expand the great work both charities do to help those who need a second chance.”

Sam Lawson Johnston of LJ Real Estate aded: “We are very excited to welcome The Clink Café to our building. They do exceptional work in giving people the opportunity to thrive and they will be a valuable addition to the community of businesses in Canada House and the local community.”

Opening in mid-April, the café team will be serving a range of food and drink using fresh, high quality, seasonal ingredients.
