Cafe Inclusive - a cafe for all.

Cafe Inclusive - a cafe for all.

Laura Thomas-Hockey By Laura Thomas-Hockey

I would like to create a pay as you feel cafe. This cafe will be an inclusive space for all. Somewhere for people hang out and eat good food.

Hackney Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

the basis of the idea is it to have a hub in the community where food is made and eaten. I want to be able to produce affordable and healthy meals. So essentially it will be a inclusive cafe with a bike which can deliver food to local businesses and the community. I initially thought about a food van but the license to sell food is problematic and also London parking etc! This is why it would be better to have a bike and keep people fit at the same time! I would love to offer training to the community. I know that once you become isolated and jobless it is difficult to get out of it. With somewhere to get skills and to give you a sense of purpose it can turn a life around. I have had a varied past. I also was a young mum who had many struggles. I can relate to alot of people in the community that I currently work in. I also worked with Reed employment on a project getting long term unemployed back in to work. So have experience of helping people find employment and training.

What we'll deliver:

  • Offer Training to people
  • Create an inclusive space
  • Jobs for people

Why it's a great idea:

This is something that is needed. London at times feels lonely and unwelcoming. London is wonderful and a melting pot of amazing people. Through my work as a Project Manager working on a food project. I realise food brings people together. It's also something we have in common. We all have to eat! I want to create a space for all. I also want to create opportunity for the community. The families that I have met through my work want a way to get back to work. The group I would like to consider helping is mother's needing skills, training and support. Making the cafe a place that is pay as you can means people that can will. People that can't pay as much will still be able to be part of it. I am passionate about this idea. I have interest in a financial backer. I want to make this a reality!
