In an age of rising social and moral anxiety, where cases of exploitation are more prevalent in the public eye and demands for justice are increasing, there has never been a more pressing time for charitable organisations to provide services for those caught in exploitative situations. Despite the urgent need, there remains a large void in support services, a void originally noticed by our Bramber team some years ago. As a result, Bramber Bakehouse was born to play our part. To give exploited women second chances, to bridge the current gap and provide training and support that would continually encourage them towards a positive future.
Bramber Bakehouse currently provides 6-month workshops, with a view to create internships in the future. The workshop programmes, which are made up of 50% baking time and 50% wider training, are constructed to give women the best chance of recuperation and include one-to-one mentoring, support with life skills including budgeting and career advice and offer opportunities to make new friends and have fun.
