Equal Brewkery are aiming to to show that people with learning disabilities can participate fully and contribute to a financially successful and sustainable business, through brewing beer and baking bread.
Equal Brewkery are an ambitious profit-for-purpose community interest company and our key aim is to make and sell great tasting bread and delicious beer. The reason we are different is that our brewers and bakers have learning disabilities. Any surplus we make from the sale of bread and beer will be reinvested into training and support in the Brewkery and promoting employment opportunities for the participants.
How will they do it
- With the help of volunteers train people with learning disabilities to make beer and bake bread and sell in the Norwich and Norfolk.
- Offer routes to employment for people with a learning disability in the beer and baking industry
- Share our learning with other areas and groups who want to set-up and develop similar companies
- Promote and publicise our work to help improve awareness and perceptions of people with learning disabilities
