A CAF: which gives homeless people and ex-offenders on the job training and experience, is getting a makeover by Swedish design company Ikea.
The Crisis Skylight Caf� in Commercial Street, on the Shoreditch - Aldgate borders , is getting its first revamp since opening in 2004 from designers at Ikea.
Joanna Taylor, Manager of Crisis Skylight cafe, said: "The best thing about the makeover is that our members will have a more professional environment to work and cook in, and that's so important in terms of day-to-day inspiration.
"It reflects the aspirations we have of all of our members, especially those who have made the caf� such a great place over the last six years."
