Off The Fence Logo

At roasted, we like to help those who aren’t as fortunate as we are. We support the Brighton-based charity Off The Fence by supplying Fairtrade coffee for their wonderful Antifreeze project.

The Antifreeze team serves the needs of those who are sleeping rough or who are inadequately housed in the Brighton and Hove area. Five nights a week during the winter months, and three nights a week during the rest of the year, the team goes out onto the streets to help these people.

They do this in a number of ways; firstly by handing out street sheets and giving information as to where these men and women can receive help regarding health care and accommodation. Secondly, in a practical way, by offering each person a warm drink, a sandwich, a few clothes, some toiletries and, where one is required, an emergency sleeping bag to ease the burden of sleeping rough. But, most importantly, they offer their time to sit and listen.
