We want to positively affect the lives of people with learning disabilities to allow them to meet their aspirations

by Real Bread Company in Wentbridge, England, United Kingdom

For years we have delivered education, craft, drama and leisure activities for people with learning disabilities. Recently it was made clear that they wanted more and their aspirations, much like any one else's, was to have a proper job - paid work, to have control of their own money and engage more with their community. To that end we determined to try to meet their aspirations. We want to build a genuinely sustainable bakery and café where people of all abilities can work together side by side as a team delivering excellent service and be paid for it. We have an artisan baker to train and support them in the bakery but desperately need the resources to fund buddies and staff support within the café where the artisan bread will be used to create great meals. We think with a small investment we can achieve a sustainable trading position within a year or so. Investors will be given discounts on food and bread to recognize their support.
