What is Bake and Brew?

Your Bake and Brew event can be anything from a coffee morning in your community to a cocktail and cupcake party with friends. You can even get your kids involved by holding an icing party.

It's all in the name of having lots of cake-filled fun and selling cakes and cuppas to raise vital funds to support the most vulnerable young people in our country.

Host a Bake and Brew

Choose a place to hold it and invite friends, family and colleagues.

Use our free fundraising materials - including a helpful fundraising guide and recipes from home bakers and celebrity chefs.

Get baking - ask friends and family to donate in exchange for lots of cake-filled fun.

Pay in the donations you collect - money you raise helps us improve young people's lives.

Why hold a Bake and Brew?

Every slice and cup sold at your Bake and Brew helps make a difference to the lives of vulnerable young people.

Through our direct practice and other work, we provide a lifeline to many young people who experience neglect. This neglect may be from family, carers or wider society. No child should feel unwanted. We believe every child should feel loved and cared for.
