‘I just want people to feel like people again’

Life on the streets can be a tough and dehumanising experience – but one Bristol woman is seeking to challenge the bias surrounding homelessness, one cup of tea at a time.

Sarah Jade plans to open a ‘Humanitea Cafe,’ which she hopes will act as a hub for the wider community, as well as a central point with facilities, food and clothes for the city’s rough sleepers.

The concept is simple – anyone who buys a hot drink is handed a token to give to someone they think needs it, be they homeless, at risk of being homeless, or in need of help and support.
