Change Please helps those experiencing homelessness by training them to be baristas. Providing training, employment and support with housing, finances and therapy to help people affected by homelessness move forward.

Salford Students' Union is one of the first cafés in Greater Manchester to team up with Change Please and 100% of the profits from this great tasting coffee goes to end homelessness.

On finalising this partnership, the University of Salford SU’s Head of Catering and Bars, Alan Warnock, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with such an influential organisation making huge strides to tackle homelessness in our local community.”

Change Please Managing Director, Julian Burnham added: “By working with educators such as Salford SU, who understand and support our mission, we can reach the change-makers of the future, ensuring long-term, sustainable change. We firmly believe that the coffee industry has the power to change lives and we enable this change by selling fantastic coffee. Since launching in 2015 we have used the profits from this premium coffee experience to help over ​175 people with support or training, and 72 with employment as baristas.”
