Only 32% of autistic adults in the UK are in paid employment, despite over 80% stating a clear wish to work. This figure falls to a shocking 16% in full-time employment. This hasn’t changed in over a decade and for people with severe autism, the picture is even bleaker with the current expectation being that they will never enter the world of work.

Bread & Beyond is aiming to change the future prospects of young people with severe autism by teaching them to bake amazing bread. Our training programme is helping the young people at Prior's Court to learn new skills, which will open up their workplace opportunities.

Our bakery is now up and running but we need your help to ensure the bakery can support the young people at Prior's Court well into the future. Please give what you can by clicking 'donate' above.
