Job training for special needs adults in the Bake with Dignity kitchen

creating equal opportunities 

Society's misconceptions about learning disabilities hit particularly hard when it comes to finding work.
 

Many employers won't even give people with special needs a chance. Or they only trust them with the most menial tasks.

Dignity & Services has been battling discrimination and promoting equal opportunities in the workplace since the charity's earliest days.

 

And we've been providing job training and meaningful employment experience for adults with learning disabilities for nearly two decades.

what is bake with dignity on-the-job training?

When Bake with Dignity started in 2006 in the kitchen of our Option for Supported Living program, we had limited ambitions.

By giving our 
members the chance to bake for their families and friends, we hoped they'd become more comfortable in the kitchen and more independent in feeding themselves.

But word soon spread of their delicious baked treats. They began getting both corporate and private orders.

 

So the Bake with Dignity brand was born.

Today BwD is a social enterprise with a standalone professional kitchen.

Our ambitions have grown by equal measure ...

 

The program now offers thorough employment training to adults with learning disabilities. And gives them exposure to a real-life work environment before supporting them to transition into the broader workplace.
