There are two ways you can request a cake from Free Cakes For Kids, Bristol:
By being referred - this is the most common route with referrals coming from partner organisations, family support workers etc. Referral in this way means we already understand that you have a need for our services.
By referring yourself - we do also accept self-referrals but you will be asked a few questions as to why your child should receive a cake. We do this because Free Cakes for Kids is here for those who need it the most in our community and we need to ensure that we distribute our limited resources to those who need it the most. It is not for those who have the means to provide a cake but do not want to spend the time, money or effort. As a voluntary community based organisation we are here to help those with a genuine need.
The Request Process
To refer a client or yourself for a cake, please fill out the form, via the button at the top and bottom of this page.
Once the form has been submitted, our coordinator will review and contact you, usually via email.
Once we have confirmed all of the information and found a baker from our network, they will bake it and deliver it to you for the requested date.
If you are able, some feedback as to how the cake was received is always appreciated. It means that we can let our volunteers know that their time has really made a difference to the child's birthday and learn from your experience to improve our process.
You should remember that all our cakes our home-baked by volunteers so this is exactly what you get - good home baking and decoration to the best of our volunteers ability. We normally provide plain sponge cakes but if you have any special requests, please let us know and we will try to accommodate them.
