“The original Colchester Social Enterprise serving coffee and food with a conscience”

GO4 Enterprises helps unemployed people in Essex access volunteering & work experience opportunities, accredited training and employment. We particularly work with individuals who face significant challenges in life and by buying from our Market Cafe you help us provide them with extra support to achieve their dreams. Contact us for info on other  ways you can support us in our work.

About Us:

Since we moved out of Trinity Church (see here why) we now operate our cafe on the Rec.

You can still experience our fresh cake, coffee and food served in a relaxed atmosphere by our friendly staff and volunteers.

We are open at the follwoing times:

Open Thursday to Saturday, from 12:00 – 16:00; Sundays from 08:00 – 16:00.

We are closed Monday to Wednesday.

You will find us on the Recreation Ground in the Old Heath part of town (see map).

Our ethos remains the same: to support marginalised, unemployed and homeless people with work and training opportunities. The ‘breakfast pay forward’ scheme will continue to operate on a daily basis when the café is open.

Our Vision: 

No more NEETs.


To create volunteering, work experience, training and employment opportunities for unemployed people whilst providing quality support and help to increase their skills, employability and well-being.
