SolCafe from Sol Cafe

We decided to create an LGBTIQ+ pay as you feel cafe that offers a welcoming, accessible safe space for all, and particularly the most marginalised members of the LGBTIQ+ community, people who are refugees, Asylum seekers or experiencing homlessness. The idea came from being involved with the solidarity kitchen that was founded by members of the Birmingham community and The Warehouse Cafe cooperative at the beginning of the Covid pandemic in March 2020. We recognised then the need for a safe space for asylum seekers, refugees, people in precarious living situations who may also be part of the LGBTIQ+ community.  Over 20,000 free meals were cooked and delivered to people in need. This grassroots initiative organised volunteers, logistics, information campaigns and food thanks to an online fundraiser which reached over £17,000 and was meant to exist for the duration of the pandemic/ lockdown.

Our intention is to create a vibrant, nourishing environment that encourages wholesome relationships and support networks through the medium of food, skills sharing, art, performing arts, music and storytelling. We aim to grow and be a focal point in the community alongside the changing face of Digbeth, with the arrival of HS2 and further planned development
