Allsaints Coffee Shop
In 2014 we launched Allsaints Coffee Shop and Enterprise centre, our first social enterprise. Allsaints employs 4 local young people on year-long apprenticeships, allowing them to learn new skills whilst earning their first wage.

We have a diverse range of projects and activities on offer in order to provide long-term support for ages 7-19, including BFree Youth Café, Counselling & Mentoring, Schools Work, Sports Projects, International trips and offering qualifications such as Duke of Edinburgh.
Please get in touch if you would like to learn more about our work.
We take a relational and positive approach which provides support and skills to disadvantaged young people, helping them to overcome barriers they are facing and build a brighter future. We are a team of experienced youth workers and counsellors who care about the local community, and between us we have a total of 40 years of delivering services to young people in Leatherhead.
Our approach involves..
Every Day Youth Work - Offering services to young people every day to ensure they have things to do and places to go. At BFree Youth Cafe, we offer a safe, supportive base 5 days a week.
Prioritising Relationship - We take a relational approach to our youth work, ensuring that we build positive and appropriate relationships with young people and their families.
Being holistic - From saying hello to a young person for the first time, through to supporting them into employment as an adult, we aim to offer a holistic service which supports every stage of their development as a young person.
Co-Production - We believe that young people should have the opportunity to shape and lead the youth work they engage in. We have several youth councils and steering groups to ensure young people take ownership over the projects at LYP.
