In September 2020 we opened the Revive Coffee House in The Eastgate Shopping Centre.
This was a fantastic opportunity that we couldn't turn down after we had used the unit for 6 weeks over Christmas 2019 as a donation drop off point.
Revive is a place to relax, enjoy ethically sourced hot drinks, homemade cakes and treats or cold drinks whilst supporting our work.
But it is also more than that. It is a place where we can offer employment, volunteering and training opportunities to people who have lived experience of homelessness or addiction. In March 23 Revive was featured on BBC's Songs of Praise.
Upstairs is a commercial kitchen where we now run all of our Street Teams out of (5 days a week), plus we offer cooking lessons to clients living in temporary accommodation or these moving in to permanent housing.
