Georgina Evans, Crisis' head of retail innovation and enterprise said "Keeping the tradition of our other stores, it will sell good quality clothing, accessories, books and furniture.

"More than a shop, it will be a central hub for the community, providing a space to come together, share ideas, and engage with our mission. There is also a café where visitors can enjoy a Crisis coffee, cakes and other refreshments.

"Our shops are also somewhere for us to train homeless people with skills that they can use to find confidence and rebuild their lives."
