Who:Baked: Cake with a Cause CIC Where: Worthing, West Sussex What: A cafe and bakery known for it’s creative celebration cakes and indulgent brownies Price: Varies – see the website for full details
By choosing this ethical supplier you will support local young people gain valuable work experience
Through my current job, I’ve been visiting Baked once a month since the summer, and I come back with more and more brownies each time! They are honestly delicious, and taste even better knowing the brownies are helping local young people into work. They make a range of beautiful celebration and wedding cakes (if you can pick them up) and are also able to deliver their brownies, a perfect treat for any event.
Not quite right for your event, but you want to support them anyway? Why not order some of their delicious brownies to be delivered straight to your door

Who:Page & Bloom Where: Based in London but ship across the UK and internationally What: Flowers made from recycled paper for weddings, corporate displays and other occasions. Price: Varies – see the website for full details
By choosing this ethical supplier you will support employment for women who have experienced domestic abuse, as well as reducing waste from the use of cut flowers.
Not quite right for your event, but you want to support them anyway? Why not send a bouquet to a friend (or just treat yourself!) Or book them for a flower making workshop.
I am completely in love with this organisation! It has so much to offer – a beautiful product, that is both environmentally friendly AND supports women seeking refuge. I recently found out that a friend is spending £10,000 on flowers at her wedding (!) – just think about the impact that money could have with an organisation like this. I can’t see a reason to ever buy fresh flowers for an event again.
Who: The Feed Where: Norwich What: A full catering service and cafe Price: Varies – see the website for full details
By choosing this ethical supplier you will support training for people who have experienced homelessness
Not quite right for your event, but you want to support them anyway? Why not visit their cafe in Norwich
Another day and another food-based social enterprise that I get the pleasure of working with, it’s a hard life! The Feed are well known in Norwich and quite rightly as their food is delicious and they are helping many local people into work through their extensive training programme. Their new cafe is well worth a visit too.
