An artisan bakery in the South East,

providing opportunities for 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 internships, training and support that help them get back on their feet. We are a soon-to-be registered charity, founded first and foremost to help rebuild lives which have been affected by injustice. We believe in hope, freedom and starting over.

The Plan

The plan is divided into three phases. The first begins in September 2016 and leads towards the launch of the full internship programme.

01/

Workshops

A workshop programme containing 6 monthly courses, teaching baking and employability skills. Starting September 2016.

02/

Bakery

A bakery supplying local businesses, operating alongside ongoing workshops.

03/

Internships

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 6 month workshops, with a view to create an internship in the future. The programmes are constructed to give the best chance of recovery to women who have previously experienced exploitation and will include one-to-one mentoring, support with life skills including budgeting, career advice and, where appropriate, specific and expert counselling.

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.

We need your help

We need your help to equip our kitchen with all the equipment we’ll need for the monthly workshops. For the cost of a whisk, you can directly impact the life of a woman who has experienced exploitation. Every item you donate takes us one step closer to starting the workshops this autumn. Thank you for all you’ve done for us so far – we’re excited for the next step of the journey.
