Everyone deserves a Second Shot

1459579428-Second Shot Coffee - London-Bethnal Green Road-Business

Coffee, black gold or the bean that stops me from committing GBH every morning is now doing more than merely waking up the masses, it’s combating homelessness in the capital too.

The Second Shot Cafe in Bethnal Green has combined London’s coffee culture with the fight to eradicated homelessness by hiring former rough sleepers, providing training & one-to-one support, food drives, community support activities, a pay-it-forward scheme where customers can prepay for items that can be claimed later by a person in need (loving that idea!), as well as a number of other initiatives that aim to help people reintegrate back into full time employment and ultimately a stable live style.
