Volunteer as a Baker
Please read the following information and fill out the contact form below.
Thanks for your interest in baking for us. We're always looking for new volunteers!
We bake cakes for children whose families might find it difficult to provide a cake themselves. The reasons for this could be wide ranging, including refugee status, poverty, disability, young carer etc.
The cakes are always provided free, with ingredients paid for by the volunteer baker as part of their contribution. They are also generally delivered by the volunteer, this is sometimes to the partner organisation and sometimes directly to the family. This will be to a Bristol or South Gloucestershire location.
Each cake opportunity is offered to all volunteers with a little bit of relevant information about what it will entail. This could include the child's theme request (Superheroes, chocolate, rainbows etc.) and a rough delivery area. An interested and available baker is then selected to do the bake and given any more information they will need to complete the request and delivery.
In 2019, we baked 68 cakes so we are (normally) pretty busy but there are also plenty of bakers so the burden does not fall to just a few.
We have a number of food safety requirements which can be seen
. You will also be sent this information and be asked to sign to confirm that you will comply with the requirements when you sign up.
We also require that all information about the children and their families are treated with confidentiality. We will only collect and share information that is relevant to the baking and delivering of the cake and this will only be shared with the selected volunteer baker. When signing up you will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.
No baker is to bake under the guise of, or purport to bake for FREE CAKES FOR KIDS Bristol without the referral having come through the Area Organiser. If a baker is approached directly to bake under the guise of FREE CAKES FOR KIDS, the baker must refer the request to the Area Organiser before any agreement to bake is made. This ensures FREE CAKES FOR KIDS Bristol can comply with the Health and Safety and confidentiality policies.

It is worth following us on
as we try to post pictures of the completed bakes, so you can see what other bakers are up to.
Please note: with the new lockdown measures we sadly won't be baking for now, as we don't want to put our volunteers or the children and their families at any risk with increased contact. However we are happy to sign up new volunteers in the meantime and endeavor to start baking again as soon as the current lockdown measures are lifted.
If you would like to sign up, or just get some more information about what it means to volunteer for FREE CAKES FOR KIDS Bristol, please fill out the contact form below.
We look forward to hearing from you!
