Not by choice
No one chooses to become homeless. A relationship breakdown, or losing your job, people that are homeless are victims of circumstance. The average person in the UK is just 2 pay checks away from becoming homeless.
After regular opening hours, the cafe reopens as a hub for homelessness. They partner with charities such as Finest Foundation, Providence Row Housing Association, and Who is Hussain to provide food drives, give out their pay it forwards, as well as provide advisory services to the homeless.
In our view Julias Ibrahim is a perfect example of the Millennial generation mindset. He is the living proof that this generations really cares about having a positive impact, doing something meaningful. And at the same time, do this through setting up a social enterprise as opposed to e.g. an NGO. In order for these type of businesses to succeed, the product or service they deliver must be just as good or better than the ‘regular corporate’ competitors. Ibrahim understands this better than no one. Hats off, hands down and RESPECT for him and his team.
