Cemal

Our mission is to tackle homelessness by selling great coffee. We have worked with London’s leading coffee experts to source and produce the best coffee around. We’ll be training homeless people as baristas, giving them the skills and tools to sell the best coffee on the street, via state of the art carts and machines. We’re combining The Big Issue’s 25 years of experience with a fresh approach to making a difference. Each barista entering the programme will be housed, trained and given all the support they need while being paid London living wage. After six months they will move into full time employment with one of our partners so we can help the next wave of people. This really is a fully rounded programme designed to get people back on their feet.

Snact

43imageSnact is a social enterprise developing creative solutions to food waste and food poverty. Every day huge a amount of food is wasted unnecessarily. Snact addresses this by using some of this perfectly good and edible food to make great snacts. Our first product, fruit jerky, is made with 100% fruit, no additives or preservatives. We want to draw attention to the issue of food waste, an injustice when so many people have to rely on food banks to feed themselves. That’s why we’re going to create employment opportunities for people who are affected by food poverty, giving them the opportunity to earn extra income, by selling our products and keeping the margins that would usually go to retailers and distributors.

School Ground Sounds

Tom

21imageDuring my teaching experience, it became clear that increased pressure on schools to perform in Maths and English often meant that music is left behind, denying young people of invaluable opportunities and cultural capital. With a background in music production and experience working with artists (including George Ezra when he was 18), I felt well placed to tackle this inequality. And so I set up School Ground Sounds (SGS), which is now a music charity with a mission to discover and showcase talented musicians in London schools. We provide high-quality opportunities for young people to record and develop their music-making.

Baretalks empowers young adults to step out of silence and get access to support.
