Description

The Breadmaker, as part of the Aberdeen Day Project (a registered charity) is an artisan bakery and coffee house. Located in Aberdeen City we produce and sell a range of quality handcrafted breads and confectionary to wholesale and retail customers alike with the purpose of providing a range of work placements, training and social activities for adults with learning disabilities (apprentices) who can otherwise experience exclusion and isolation in society.

As Volunteer Trustees/Directors you would help maintain the objectives and aims of the Breadmaker to include and empower people who attend the charity to play a full and active role in the community, reduce isolation, increase friends/social life, increase confidence and self esteem of individuals who have a learning disability. We would especially be appreciative of people to join our Board of Trustees who have a professional background, people who come from HR, IT, Marketing, Care, Counsellor background etc.
Our Board of Trustees meetings take place monthly and there is also an Annual General Meeting.

An exciting and fantastic opportunity to volunteer at an award winning social enterprise/charity, working alongside our CEO and senior management team to enhance apprentices/people we support lives.
