Providence Row - Rise Bakery

“It’s been another great year of growth and development at Rise. We have partnered with leading facilities management company Interserve, which has supported us by selling our brownies in the Foreign Commonwealth Office as well as the Cabinet Office and Downing Street. There are further plans in the pipeline to expand contracts.

Rise bakery is going from strength to strength with plans to develop a brand-new purpose-built bakery for early 2020. This will not only boost our brownie production, but also our training capacity. We’re so excited about what 2020 holds.

Homeless Link has supported us through the Enterprise Development Programme to access funds for our Rise Co-ordinator, Joey, to train more people in our 10- week baking training scheme. Joey has been teaching our trainees a variety of essential baking skills and techniques. She has also organised a fully-funded trip for our trainees to visit a professional bakery and gain key commercial insights.”
