Community café

We run a community café that is open to the public, providing catering and hospitality training to help our students move on to find longer-term employment.

We also run a free food service in partnership with the Black Prince Trust to support Lambeth residents adversely affected by the cost-of-living crisis. Students help to prepare, cook and distribute nutritious meals from our community café at the Black Prince Community Hub in Vauxhall.

Taking part in the project:
  • Encourages active citizenship - supporting the community during a difficult time leads to a sense of pride and achievement
  • Helps students feel a part of the community and encourages them to develop their social skills as they connect with local residents
  • Develops hospitality and catering skills, providing valuable work experience which could lead to future employment opportunities
