H.M.Pasties - Bring Out the Good Inside
H.M.Pasties aims to reduce re-offending rates through employment and peer mentoring, we employ people with criminal convictions upon release from custody and also work with young people who are trapped in an offending cycle with little or no hope of finding a way out, we produce high quality hand made pasties, where possible sourcing ingredients from prison farms and gardens.
Supported by Groundwork, Santander and the Big Lottery Fund H.M.Pasties have been working from hired kitchen space but have now reached the point where we need our own base and are seeking funding to help us achieve our aim, which is ultimately to be a self sustaining employment programme for people with criminal convictions.
You can help us to Bring Out the Good Inside by making a contribution and help us to build our own bakery.
