About us

We're an award-winning charity supporting female survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery. Using baking as a tool, our programme provides baking, wellbeing and employability skills-based training in a safe, caring environment.

Whilst we equip and empower women with the skills they need for a positive future, we also support them as they integrate into the wider community, moving to voluntary work, paid employment or further education. 

“I learned that I was born with the skills I need to do anything. I just need to recognise and use them. This has really given me the strength and courage to go on.” - Graduate, Cohort 7

 Why Bramber Bakehouse? 

Every survivor who walks through our doors has a unique story to tell; many have been stripped of confidence, dignity and vision for a positive future. 

Our programme "a little taste of freedom", provides the safe and caring space needed to rebuild confidence, connect with a community and work towards a future of independence - whether that's through voluntary work, paid employment or education. 

We've witnessed incredible transformation with survivors equipped and empowered to learn new skills, step into new work environments and even - complete university degrees!

Your money can change the trajectory of a women's life.

Last year we had to turn away 30% of applicants so this year, we're scaling-up! With your support we'll run 36 workshops supporting more survivors than ever before.

Alongside this, we're developing a coaching + mentoring scheme, providing long-term support to survivors after they've graduated. 

Your support will enable us scale-up and put the time, money and resource into our coaching + mentoring scheme with a focus on supporting women into voluntary roles, paid employment or education.

It's just the beginning...

We know our work has a hugely positive effect on the women we support and we want to do more. Over the next 12 months we'll be embarking on a journey to find a permanent home for Bramber Bakehouse - enabling us to run programmes more frequently with further support offered to the women who need it most. 

We're also working towards a model of semi-self-sustainability - setting up a social enterprise bakery which will provide voluntary and paid work opportunities to graduates. 

"Bramber Bakehouse is the motivation I needed. You just need to enter to see what you can achieve and go out and get it." - Graduate, Cohort 8
