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

Our desire is to break the chains of oppression that come with years of exploitation. We sincerely believe that if one woman’s life is changed during their time with us, then this whole thing will have been worthwhile. Our prayer however, is that we will see not one but hundreds of women equipped to create their own futures, free from the stigma, judgement and disadvantage of their past.

 

We’ve been cooking (or baking!) up this idea for quite a while now but we’ve come to realise there is one thing missing… you! If you’re as excited as we are, if you’re passionate about releasing women from exploitation, then we need you. Would you please consider supporting us financially?
