The Platform Community Cafe By The Platform Community Cafe

We are renovating a disused public toilet in Loughborough Junction. Our vision is to turn our part-time volunteer-run café into a thriving community kitchen, flexible restaurant and event space.

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

We run a thriving café in Loughborough Junction, serving vegetarian cooking to the local community, with a focus on health, wellbeing and sustainability. We provide local people with access to healthy and nutritious food and a welcoming space to feel at home. As well as delivering workshops around health, wellbeing and sustainability for the community, we will offer a structured programme of skills training for volunteers and provide business support for budding cooks in the local area. The cafe will be available for community and private hire, generating a rental income from the organisations, food businesses and residents in the area who are keen to hire the space.

What we'll deliver:

  • Renovating the Platform
  • A full calendar of community events
  • New opportunities and training for local cooks

Why it's a great idea:

The cafe is already a huge success and very popular in the local community. With your help, we can continue to celebrate the diverse food cultures of Loughborough Junction and deliver events, workshops, training and increase employment for locals. Connecting people and promoting inclusivity are high on our list of priorities - we have created a warm hub where people feel welcome, accepted and are more invested in supporting the community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Employ a community outreach manager
