’Collaboration isn’t about giving up our individuality; it’s about realising our greater potential.’ Joseph Rain
We’re delighted to announce that we’re teaming up with the Sophie Hayes Foundation to deliver Day 46 – a learning programme designed to support survivors of trafficking and modern day slavery.
The Day 46 Programme will form part of the workshops and will follow on from morning baking sessions, taught by Co-Founder Lucy Butt and baking extraordinaire, Martha Collison.
Lorraine McIntyre leads the awareness team at The Sophie Hayes Foundation. Here she is to share a few words with you…
‘The Day 46 Programme is an identity, purpose, self-esteem and employability programme for women who have come out of trafficking. It is a blend of group work, coaching, voluntary vocational placements and on-going support, tailored to each individual. We have seen tremendous success to date with some very encouraging feedback which suggests the programme is really helping these individuals, who have been through such unimaginable trauma, to make discoveries about the amazing person they are inside, and from that place of confidence, start making steps towards a fulfilling future in which they are able to pursue their hopes and dreams. And along the way we have fun! At the heart of all the foundation does is the concept that strong community is a key to recovery and that connection and togetherness are important, not only for the women we work with, but in how we function as a foundation. We believe that together we can achieve more and it is in this spirit of collaboration that we endeavour to reach out to those with a similar vision and work together to bring about greater change.’
We’re extremely thankful to God for placing us in the right place, at the right time. This will enable us to be as effective and efficient as possible in working together with other anti-trafficking organisations.
Please continue to pray for us as we receive training from The Sophie Hayes Foundation throughout August, ready to launch Bramber Bakehouse this autumn.
