With 15 years in hospitality and 2 in the charitable sector working with vulnerable young people and adults both in the UK and Asia, Charlie puts coffee and food at the heart of social change at Café From Crisis in Spitalfields.  

Coffee has a universality that connects people across continents and has been at the heart of families and communities for centuries, making it the perfect vehicle to help people grow their confidence, self-esteem, skill and re-connect to society after a period of isolation, either in prison or on the streets.  

The biggest influence on my career so far has to be the people I train and support, whether that’s vulnerable adults in east London or young refugees looking to learn a new skill.  My day-to-day work, the training programme and future projects are inspired by them.
