SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE

AllSaints was launched in 2014 by Leatherhead Youth Project (LYP), a charity that supports hundreds of local young people. What once was a local church congregation at All Saints is now a community hub open six days a week serving coffee and supporting young people.

As a social enterprise, AllSaints was created by LYP to support disadvantaged and NEET (Not in Education, Employment or training) young people. The coffee shop gives its trainees the opportunity to gain valuable employability and life skills and in an accessible and compassionate environment – providing them with a healthy launchpad for working life.

Over the past six years the coffee shop has trained 20 young people, building up their confidence, customer service skills and self-worth to raise their aspirations and become valuable contributors to their local community.

YOUR SUPPORT

By simply visiting the coffee shop you are helping to support local young people – thank you!

We are very well-known for providing speciality coffee which we source from Beanberry Coffee Roastery based in Woking. Alongside our coffee, we also offer a selection of loose-leaf teas and three different types of hot chocolate (white, milk and dark) all made from real chocolate flakes.

To go alongside your hot drink, we have a selection of hand-crafted sandwiches and a large range of cakes including some that are made by our very own young people. For those with a sweet tooth we highly recommend giving our double chocolate chunk brownies, rocky road bars and caramel shortcake a try – enjoy!

Being hidden away in a church building we are one of the best kept secrets in Leatherhead and need your support to help spread the word about our great coffee and cakes to your friends. One great way to do this is by following us @allsaints_so on Instagram or at ‘AllSaints Leatherhead’ on Facebook and tagging us in your posts when you visit the coffee shop to help us raise awareness.

COMMUNITY FOCUS

As a social enterprise we pride ourselves on supporting our local community and are delighted that we’ve connected with so many amazing organisations in Leatherhead, providing a welcoming and friendly space for them to connect with others and offer much needed support and guidance.

During the pandemic when our doors were closed our building was used for the community fridge, providing over 100 local families a week with fresh food that otherwise would have been wasted.

Last year we hosted a special Christmas event for Home-Start families to bring some joy during the festive season and we continue to show our support by providing a safe and welcoming space for Home-Start to meet up with their parents and children.

Over the years our meeting room has been regularly used as a drop-in centre for many organisations including Jigsaw and Citizen Advice Bureau to offer valuable support to the local community.

We are very lucky to have a large space which makes socially distancing really easy and provides a welcoming place for our community to come together.
