An artisan bakery in the South East,

providing opportunities for previously exploited women.

Scrumptious homemade cakes, delicious artisan breads

and a little taste of freedom.

Bramber Bakehouse was born to give exploited women second chances, by providing training and support that help them get back on their feet. We are a registered charity, founded first and foremost to help rebuild lives which have been affected by injustice. We believe in hope, freedom and starting over.


Bramber Bakehouse is a registered charity. Charity no: 1172837

The Plan

The plan is divided into three phases. We’ve just started our fifth round of workshops and are working towards the second stage.



A programme containing 8-monthly workshops, teaching baking and employability skills.



A bakery supplying local businesses, operating alongside ongoing workshops.



A full residential internship programme operating in the bakery, alongside employability and qualifications.

The Vision

Central to our philosophy is a passion to see women who have been exploited set free. It runs through all that we do and every cake that we bake.


Bramber Bakehouse currently provides 8-month workshops, with a view to create an internship programme in the future. Each workshop consists of two halves. The first, led by Head Baker Martha Collison (previous Great British Bake Off contestant) provides training in baking. The second, in partnership with The Sophie Hayes Foundation provides employability training. Our hope is to see lives transformed and restored through our programme, and to offer encouragement as women prepare for future employment.

You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past. You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community livable again.


Isaiah 58:12 (msg)



Restoring women, helping them realise their full potential.


Continuing to follow God in everything, through humility and faithfulness.


Working alongside partners and friends to maintain transparency and integrity.
