Breadwinners is a small but multi-award-winning and ambitious charity, and not for profit social enterprise, providing work experience, training and mentoring opportunities for refugees and young people seeking asylum.
We currently run three progressive programmes. The ‘Risers Programme’ for young people seeking asylum and the ‘Breadwinners Programme’ for refugees operate from our unique artisan bread stalls in markets across London, where we sell organic high-quality bread with 100% of the profit going back into the charity to power our work. The ‘Proofers Programme’, an innovative programme and last stage of support was recently created as a response to COVID 19 challenges, to support refugees with IT skills and expand their work experience by managing our new eCommerce home delivery of bread.
We have supported 110 young people seeking asylum and refugees through our programmes, with 90% of Breadwinners graduates landing a job after an average of 7 months of Breadwinners suppo
