The Good Loaf is NLive’s charity of the month for September.
The innovative cafe’s slogan Good Bread Doing Good says it all. It functions as one of the town’s favourite snacking spots but also helps women looking for a ladder out of poverty, unemployment or offending.
Behind the scenes at the cafe six week long back to work courses are running teaching the skills needed to work at The Good Loaf but also skills that will help in the wider world, such as managing money and healthy eating.
The staff are a mixture of employees, volunteers and women being supported by the charity. If you would like to find out more about their courses or offer your help volunteering email firstname.lastname@example.org or why not visit the cafe on Clare Street and pick up a form in person.
