Since 1832, the Bakers’ Benevolent Society has been providing sheltered housing for retired members of the Baking Industry and Allied Trades and continues to provide independent living within its Almshouse scheme, Bakers’ Villas in Epping Essex.

In addition, the Society is proud to continue to support of outside beneficiaries around the country in the form of small charitable grants and pensions.



In order to keep our residents safe and in accordance with Government guidance, from 24th March the Villas will be closed to all visitors. Residents are also being advised to self-isolate during this difficult time. We ask that everyone abides by these rules until further notice.
