Founded by former prison officer and army veteran Nigel Seaman, Combat2Coffee is a community interest start-up founded in 2018 which aims to:
– Create safe community and charity-led spaces within its coffee shops where veterans, families and those struggling with PTSD and other mental health issues can go to feel supported and connected.
– Educate communities and families on de-escalation strategies and techniques when engaging with individuals with disabilities and trauma-related mental health conditions.
– Reform ex-offender reintegration and improve positive outcomes via its Coffee Roasting and Barista Prisoner Rehabilitation Training Programme.
– Improve sustainability and quality of coffee across the U.K. via its direct trade branded Brazilian coffee and economies of scale achieved by wholesale trade.
Through the use of branded coffee, a strategic high street presence, pop-up caravan coffee shops, B2B engagement and its Coffee Roasting and Barista Prisoner Rehabilitation Training Programme – Combat2Coffee aims to deliver and support charitable causes, veterans and those suffering from mental health issues locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
