Welcome to bake. We are a social enterprise based in Kempston, Bedford, set up to help people in our community gain the skills they need to get back into work. Bake launched in June 2019.

Individuals are coming to us for work experience placements, where they can learn many skills in our café, including one to one teaching in customer service, barista and baking skills - with the aim that this will help people be able to get into work (which we will help them find at the end of their time with us). We want to encourage individuals to learn new skills and gain confidence in a work environment.


Bake is based in Project 229 which helps us to connect with people who need our support to gain the skills they need. We are taking referrals from various charities in Bedfordshire, if you are interested in referring someone you work with or you would like information on a work placement for yourself then please email: .

Alternatively, if you are a business that would like more information on employing the individuals we are working with then please get in contact.
