The Larder

Our work supports people like George.

George came to The Larder with dreams of becoming a chef but worried his confidence and general learning disability would hold him back. After a short few months with us, George has taken on an Apprentice Chef role and tells us: “I can honestly say that everyone I met at the Larder helped me and I will always be grateful for that.”

By submitting a vote for The Larder, our hard-working students, beneficiaries, staff and volunteers will receive the recognition they deserve, continuing to support more people become their best selves, just like George.

The Larder believes in the power of learning and its’ ability to change lives. We are an award-winning Social Enterprise, dedicated to the alleviation of poverty and for every person, regardless of their start in life, to reach their full potential, given the right time, space and support. Throughout 2021, we were able to grow and thrive in a time of worldwide adversity, continuing to support over 200 young people to reach their full potential, as well as supporting over 400 food-insecure individuals. Our life-changing services ensure that we bring positive change to our beneficiaries and to our community.
