No two people with autism are the same, and the young people at Prior’s Court all have varying capabilities, strengths and needs. This means that for one individual, success might be accessing regular taster sessions, and enjoying the baking process. For another, they might be better suited to a front of house role bagging and selling products. Or, for one young person – they could progress through our training programme and become very competent in one area, so that they eventually assist with baking products for a couple of hours each week at Bread & Beyond, or even with another bakery.

All young people at Prior’s Court have complex autism, and as such would always needs to be supported by an Autism Practitioner and supervised by our bakery team. But, our bakery is designed to be inclusive, enabling them to follow their individual strengths and interests, and achieve things which are extraordinary for them.
