About The Wicker Chair Coffee House & Bistro

Our Approach

room viewThe Wicker Chair has developed from a fantastic partnership with Palatine Beds and Your Homes Newcastle – with the support of which we have been able to create a uniquen eating experience in the heart of Westerhope. We prepare our food using only premium produce, sourced as much as possible from local providers. Our focus is very much on ethical food consumption, with a menu developed in a way that reduces food waste and by using such suppliers like FairShare.  The coffee shop allows us the opportunity to not only raise funds for our charity but also to also showcase our work and bring employment and training opportunities into the local community.  


The Wicker Chair Coffee House and Bistro is the trading arm of JET, a local charity based in Elswick, Newcastle upon Tyne. JET helps people who are most in need to find a job or training opportunities, as well as become active members if their communities. We encourage community cohesion and personal health and wellbeing through a variety of projects, ranging from careers advice, women only and youth projects. ESOL support, creative projects and programmes around volunteering. Much of our work is around integration as many of our clients have English as a Second Language, including Refugees from Syria.

The Partnership

The partnership with Palatine Beds has allowed us to work with some fantastic charitable organisations, who all support each other and can demonstrate that charity and enterprise can definitely go hand-in-hand.
