95% of people in London buy bread everyday. Wouldn’t it be great if all these sales could somehow help the most vulnerable in society?

50% OF REFUGEES BETWEEN THE AGE OF 18 AND 34 STRUGGLE TO FIND ANY WORK, DESPITE SEARCHING ON AVERAGE FOR 21 MONTHS.

Breadwinners is a grass roots charity with a no-brainer model to make this a reality. We provide training and jobs for refugees across our London farmers market stalls. This gives our Breadwinners a safe and supportive place to work, where they can really build their confidence, learn new skills and get the experience they need to get a good job or set up a business so they can have a much deserved fresh start! 

Our aim is to empower refugees through entrepreneurship, employment, work experience, training and mentoring whilst providing Londoners with the best organic artisan bread.

Through our Markets Stalls Project, Breadwinners plays two important roles:

  1. BREADWINNERS PROGRAMME. Support refugees who already have status and are struggling to find work with their first employment in UK, references, networks and entrepreneurship opportunities to independently sustain themselves and progress.  

  2. RISERS PROGRAMME. Provide early intervention support for young people (16-24yrs old) seeking asylum to build transferable skills, grow their networks, gain UK work experience, and progress through mentoring so they are better integrated and prepared to gain employment when they receive status.

 
We work with the most motivated, driven and reliable people... They just happen to be refugees.
— MARTIN COSARINSKY, DIRECTOR OF BREADWINNERS
