  • The bread maker


The ethos of the bread maker is to fully support and enable apprentices to work in a holistic and innovative way, offering a stimulating and positive experience to each individual, valuing and recognising their contribution and input as a team player within their thriving bespoke business


SFS has provided bespoke and responsive business support to The bread maker from pre start-up stage through to their consolidation and growth.

We have consistently promoted the business through the SFS Ebulletin and Social Media streams, and highlighted the work of The bread maker to NHS Health Scotland and Scottish Government Third Sector Division’s Employability Lead. SFS also facilitated the inclusion of the The bread maker as a best practice case study in Scottish Government’s ‘The Keys to Life’ Learning Disability Strategy.

In 2012, The bread maker commissioned SFS to perform an SROI analysis on the impact of the organisation on its apprentices. The subsequent report was externally verified and accredited by the SROI Network.  To view the impact summary, download here. The full report is available upon request
