Crowdfund Wolves links people with money and support enabling you to shape your local communities!
Our aim is to help the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our community by giving them a safe haven and non-judgemental environment. Upon the opening of Hub for Grub our venture will help service users’ access vocational skills and personal potential within the hospitality industry as a coffee bar and fresh food cafe. It’s our vision to facilitate positive change by training and developing people who wish to achieve meaningful goals in a professional work setting. Hub for Grub will empower positivity by opening its doors as a dry bar and mocktail lounge venue encouraging speakers to talk about life with addiction, mental health and homelessness; eventually working in conjunction with local authority and health professionals as a self-help and awareness hub assisting within the whole community.

We have Social commitment to giving back to our community. Inclusion is everything, customer impact and caring for vulnerable adults all underpinned by our commitment to make Wolverhampton a better place for all.
Steps to get it done:

Initially the idea came from an instruction from the company’s CEO to assist within their user based service program in Birmingham. Service users were encouraged to learn new skills by working within a cafe type annex attached to the office headquarters. They required me to plan and organise a simple food and coffee menu and to train the individuals who were all referred by various means through their local health services for addiction and mental health issues. I successfully helped them to achieve their goal in Birmingham where they have carried on a great social enterprise to which I played a part. I have continued, whenever possible to work within this sector and to learn as much as I can about the effects of addiction, mental health and homelessness. My local community needs a hub such as this
