About Breadwinners (watch video)

Breadwinners is an ambitious grassroots charity set up in April 2016. We provide Londoners with the best organic artisan bread while empowering refugees through employment, work experience, entrepreneurship opportunities, training and mentoring.

Today, Breadwinners sell the highest quality organic artisan bread on farmers markets across London and Brighton, and has a wholesale model, employing refugees. We are the first stepping stone for unemployed refugees and young people seeking asylum into a safe and supportive working environment, where they can gain the skills, confidence and experience to move into long-term work and improve their well-being.

"We believe refugees have extraordinary potential as entrepreneurs, employees and members of local communities. We sell the best artisan organic bread to support them to build a fresh start, providing self-employment, training, and business opportunities, to become an active part in the community"
