ReGenerate, a UK charity based in South London, empowers young people (aged 16-25) facing barriers to employment by equipping them with essential skills and experience. Here's their key focus in UK employment:

  • Social enterprise: They run "The Feel Good Bakery," a training cafe offering paid barista roles to young people. This provides valuable work experience, builds confidence, and fosters transferable skills.
  • Mentorship and support: Alongside work, participants receive one-on-one and group mentoring, helping them set goals, navigate challenges, and plan future career paths.
  • Sustainable impact: The Feel Good Bakery operates a "one for one" scheme, donating a meal to a child in need for every coffee sold, promoting social responsibility alongside personal development.
  • Addressing barriers: ReGenerate actively supports young people facing diverse challenges like homelessness, care leaver status, or learning difficulties, aiming for inclusive and impactful support.
  • Wider goals: Beyond individual success, ReGenerate fosters a sense of community, belonging, and positive change, empowering young people to contribute meaningfully to society.

ReGenerate acts as a springboard for young adults, bridging the gap between barriers and employment opportunities through practical experience, mentorship, and a supportive environment.
