About Us

Homebaked has grown out of the project, 2Up 2Down, initiated and supported by Liverpool Biennial and artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and aiming to support the local community to “take matters into our own hands” regarding the future of our neighbourhood.

After 2 ½ years of community engagement, Homebaked Community Land Trust was established in April 2012 with the aim of refurbishing the bakery building to provide workspace for social enterprise and affordable housing. Inspired by CLTs in Boston, East London, and Cumbria, it is run by a board of volunteers including people from the local area and professionals from the fields of law, architecture, accountancy and housing.

The design of the original scheme involved 59 local young people working with architects to create a new shop front and kitchen, a community space, growing space and flats above the bakery.

The Homebaked Bakery Co-operative was incorporated in June 2012 by a group of local residents passionate about the possibilities of re-opening the bakery in community ownership, and creating a successful enterprise with social as well as financial value.

After a period of community baking classes, skill sharing and test trading, the bakery is now open as a business 6 days a week. It is a place for local people to buy fresh, affordable bakery products, together with serving the considerable match day and daily tourism market generated by the football club.

    We like telling stories here at Homebaked.
