After a challenging year of Covid restrictions, staff illness and an unpredictable economic landscape, we have made the difficult decision that Rise will cease operating.

We are incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished over the past year, and we are incredibly grateful to our dynamic staff team and trainees. We are also very grateful to all of our supporters and partners, who have been a source of great encouragement to us, and to those who have donated to our work with their time, energy and money.




We’re Rise – a team of refugee women bringing the food of our cultures to the people of Glasgow.

We’ve just opened our first café! It’s located in Glasgow’s bustling east end. And we’re still feeding (and caffeinating) people all over the city from our food trailer, Noora. We cater events, too – from big business conferences, to small community gatherings.

Our social enterprise provides training for refugee women – breaking down employment barriers by providing hands-on hospitality skills. It lets women take ownership of their abilities, gain confidence, and ultimately enter secure long-term employment. Find out more about our cause here.


You can find our café at:
Templeton on the Green
G40 1DA

We're open Tuesday to Friday, 8.30am to 2.30pm.
Noora, our food trailer, travels all around Glasgow! Keep an eye on our Instagram to find out where we've set up for the day.
