Circle Collective The Skate Shop That Is Giving Back To The Community
Residing in the heart of Dalston and Lewisham, Circle Collective has watched its surroundings rapidly change due to the gentrification of the areas, despite this the mission has never changed.
The charity is called Circle Community, which founded the ‘Back Your Future’ program, which teaches young people critical skills and work experience including working roles in the skate shops.
It’s a perfect mix of buying some sick gear, and supporting a genuine cause, with CC already putting over 650 youths into full-time employment, it’s needless to say they are making a change for the better and using skateboarding as a pioneer in helping the local community.
Alongside the moral goods of the store, the social enterprise offers some of the best UK Indie collections both streetwear & gear from brands including DC, Vans, even the rare finds of Cheap Monday & so much more!
If you’re between 16-25 years old, struggling to seek employment, and are wanting to learn some essential skills to boost your future, this could be your calling! Head on over to the Circle Collective website and get yourself signed up for the program.
Alternatively, if you’re London based and looking for some new products to take your skating to the next level, hit up the stores and see what you fancy.
