We aspire to create a modern cafe&restaurant in Reading to train and employ isolated young people and get the local community to connect

by Grind Social in Reading, England, United Kingdom

"We aspire to create a safe space for the most vulnerable and isolated young people, where community meets, shares and talks through difficulties over a cup of great coffee"

We have worked with the most isolated and vulnerable young people in our society for so long that we felt that we needed to go an extra mile. We are a social worker, a youth worker, a restaurateur and all of you.

We aim to train and employ young people [15-25] for them to be able to run a successful cafe and restaurant in Reading which will also be a hub and point of reference for the local community, artists, groups and businesses to come together. 

In GRIND SOCIAL we believe that offering employment and alternatives, social and emotional support will get young people on the verge of (re)offending, drug misuse, homelessness, social exclusion to believe in themselves, get empowered and reconnect with society.

Welcome to GRIND SOCIAL where we aspire to inspire 

One Sip at a Time

The cafe will be sourced as ethically as possible through local businesses with a keen interest on protecting the environment, promoting arts, culture and the local community and will be providing a range of high quality artisanal beverages, breakfasts, lunches and desserts.

GRIND SOCIAL is aiming to reinvest any profits back to the community and to especially fund effective programmes for disadvantaged and isolated youth. All the funds raised will go towards equipping the cafe/restaurant for the young people and the local community to come together and to fund the social support and training activities run within.

WE are GRIND SOCIAL and WE are here!
