Who are we ?
The Baked Bean Company was founded by Jade and Nikko Hardrade-Grosz in 1997 with the express purpose of providing outstanding services for people with learning disabilities.
We began life as a short term summer drama project at a day care centre, but it proved so popular that the classes never stopped! We now hold up to 5 classes a day in 4 different locations throughout Wandsworth and the surrounding boroughs.
Our classes include Drama, Musical Theatre, Singing, Dance, DJing and Life Skills. We also offer holidays, club nights and a Dramatherapy service.
Our Beans In Education project is a touring drama group made up of adults with learning disabilities, who travel around the country performing short plays designed to educate the audience about what living with a learning disability is really like.
B.I.E regularly collaborate with different NHS trusts, universities and local councils to deliver a performance or workshop centred around current issues.
In 2016 The Baked Bean Company Charity launched its first education project.
Baked Bean Education run a Life Works course 5 days a week, which teaches literacy and numeracy alongside IT skills. If you would like more information, head on over to the Baked Bean Charity website at www.bakedbeancharity.com or give them a call on 020 8004 8320
