Food – particularly affordable, nutritious food – can often act as a way of engaging people who need support.  We run two projects which help people get a taste of their future by improving their employability skills and access services helping with other issues holding them back.


Brewbird serves fresh new opportunities to people who need a helping hand towards employment. It is a south-London based café and catering company with a difference. The people employed in Brewbird use St Giles’s services. Typically, they have been held back by barriers such as long-term unemployment, homelessness or involvement in the criminal justice system. Brewbird gives them a stepping stone to gain confidence, skills and experience. Trainees gain experience in food handling and preparation, customer service, catering functions and all the aspects of working in and helping to  run a bustling café whilst continuing to receive support from us to help them progress towards further employment opportunities. If that didn't sound good enough, our artisan coffee and delicious meals are also something to crow about!
