The Good Loaf

Good bread is only half our story.

As a social business we aim to provide real employment opportunities for vulnerable local women so that we can break the cycle of poverty, unemployment and offending.
By working through our structured work placements participants will gain practical skills and experience in a real work environment.

Our team is made up of paid staff, volunteers and women on work placements and we all work together, united in our passion to produce the finest bread and baked products in Northamptonshire and we are committed to improving the lives of those who have not had an easy time.

Each work programme is 6 weeks long. Each week participants will be required to attend 15 hours and on successful completion each person will acquire a Level 1 AIM Award in Employability, a Level 1 AIM Award in Volunteering and a Level 2 Certificate in Food Safety.
