Sam’s Cafe

11 June 2024

Sam’s Cafe is a wellbeing hub and cafe for vulnerable people in the Lowestoft community; supported by offender charities to help ex-offenders integrate within the community and help with their transition. It is a space for people to meet and chat with other members of this friendly community.

VIY will be painting and decorating the cafe internally and externally. We will also be replacing worktops, kitchen units, and tiling in the cafe area and reducing the size of the worktops to allow more capacity for tables and customers.


Our work will make the space more welcoming and inviting to the customers. The kitchen improvements will make the space more efficient and modern, and the adjustment to the layout will allow for a greater capacity of customer numbers.

The venue will have the ability to help more people and operate more efficiently with an improved environment for staff and clients.
