Old Spike began their journey in 2014 when they launched their cafe and roastery space in Peckham, London. They were the first speciality coffee roastery operating as a social enterprise and have since been at the forefront of using coffee as a vehicle for social change.
As a social enterprise, Old Spike's primary mission is to help reduce homelessness in the UK through training and employment within speciality coffee. Whether that's assisting the head roaster at our roastery or working in one of Old Spike's cafes as a barista, they're committed to supporting trainees from training to employment.
With 65% of profits generated going back to supporting their social mission, Old Spike rely entirely on traded income to meet their social objectives. In partnership with their sister organisation, Change Please, Old Spike have launched a state of the art barista training academy to offer a bespoke, 8 week course, providing their trainees with the following support:
- Practical and theory based learning
- Mental health support
- Work readiness training
- Financial assistance with accommodation
- Post-training employment
Once they feel each trainee is ready to step into the world of employment, Old Spike work with their employment partners to help place each graduate into a London Living Wage job.
