What is AllSaints?

AllSaints is a Speciality Coffee Shop and Sandwich Company that serves the very best coffee, the very best sandwiches and offers the very best support for local young people. Allsaints is a social enterprise which provides employment and accredited training to local young people through the government apprenticeship scheme.

Allsaints is based in Leatherhead, run from our centre in All Saints Church (aka BFree Youth Cafe). We are open to members of the public from 8am-3pm six days a week and then continue to be open to young people after school and in the evenings.

Who is Leatherhead Youth Project?

Leatherhead Youth Project launched in 2005 to provide much needed services for socially and economically disadvantaged young people in Leatherhead North. Their aim is to help young people be safe, happy, resilient, and able to make positive changes in their own lives and in their community.

LYP take a relational and positive approach which provides support and skills to young people, helping them to overcome barriers and build a brighter future. The team is made up of experienced youth workers and counsellors who care about the local community, and between them have a total of 40 years of delivering services to young people in Leatherhead.

What was the dream?

For a number of years we had dreamed about starting a business which could employ local young people who had been unable to find a job elsewhere.
After thinking about our skills and the space we have, we decided to launch a speciality coffee shop from our own building, and in October 2014 AllSaints was opened to the public.

Allsaints is run by Tina Cooper and staffed by 4 young apprentices, who will work with us for one year, earning money and achieving their apprenticeship in customer service.

Want to get involved?

AllSaints is a social enterprise that is wide open for innovation and wants to encourage people to give ideas. We also need as much publicity as possible, being disguised in a Church building, people often don’t know we exist so we need people to keep spreading the word about our great coffee and lovely atmosphere. The biggest support anyone could offer is simply continuing to buy our coffee as it really is changing the lives of young people in Leatherhead.
