Change Please

Big Issue-backed Change Please coffee now available nationwide.

For two years, Change Please has employed homeless people as baristas to sell fresh brews across London. Now, its poverty-busting coffee is available in more than 300 Sainsbury’s stores across the country.

The groundbreaking launch of Change Please changed the way thousands of people across London looked at their everyday cup of coffee. Like The Big Issue, it offered homeless men and women a ‘hand up, not a hand out’ and the opportunity to work their way out of poverty.

Now, the revolutionary project has gone nationwide, with its acclaimed, life-changing coffee now available to purchase in Sainsbury’s stores across Britain.

This landmark expansion, which sees the premium, speciality-graded coffee available in over 375 stores nationwide, follows the success of the Change Please mobile coffee carts that in under two years have grown from one cart in Covent Garden to 15 sites across London.
