The Crisis Skylight London Cafe is perched on Commercial Street in the heart of the city’s financial district and in stark contrast to many of the local eateries, this is a cafe with a mission.
The cafe takes on trainees with the aim of developing skills and gaining qualifications, to enable them to move on into stable, paid work.
And as I enter into this lively hub, the trainees are busy producing healthy, homemade food and coffees. One is even giving testimony to the results of his hard graft training here – he’s now got a full time, paid job starting in a few days time.
