​The Real Bread Campaign report on the therapeutic and social benefits Real Bread making offers to people living with mental health issues, or otherwise facing a tougher time than most of us. 

With a foreword by Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite, the Rising Up includes the results of a new survey conducted by the Campaign, stories from people who have benefitted from bread making, and examples of organisations that have had success using the craft in their work.

This report will be of interest to people involved in, or planning, therapeutic or social bread making, and organisations seeking evidence of its benefits to help secure support for their work.
