We’re delighted to announce that the Luton ResoLUTiON café, Café Nobar, has joined the Coffee Ethic family. Generously funded by Public Health England and the Big Lottery Fund and with the support of Luton Borough Council, CGL and Druglink, Café Nobar was opened by The Bridge Project, managed by Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity, in August 2016 for training and ResoLUTiON HUB users. The café was then opened to the public in January 2017. Since then the café has been offering volunteering and training opportunities to residents of Luton with the aim of building self-resilience, self- confidence and the skills needed to move back into the workplace. Coffee Ethic will, in partnership with the Bridge, continue to develop this volunteer pathway and we look forward to connecting with the Luton community to achieve this.
