Shaw Trust - Enterprises North East

Shaw Trust is a national charity which supports disabled and disadvantaged people to prepare for work, find jobs and live more independently.

Shaw Trust Enterprises is a community nursery and garden centre based in Grangefield and a commissioned service for Stockton Borough Council. The three acre site provides horticultural activity both on-site and within the community for adults with learning disabilities as well as Autism, ASC or complex needs.

It’s operated as a charitable enterprise this means that the plants grown, things made and services provided within the community help contribute to the running costs of the service; as well as providing meaningful interaction and training opportunities for our service users. We’re open to the public and offer a range of horticultural products including: shrubs, perennials, summer and winter bedding, hanging baskets and wreaths. 

The service is open to adults 18 – 65 and we can offer placements from Monday to Friday, 9:30 till 3pm. We offer group work in 1:5 and 1:2 ratios to allow for progression. Unique person centered support plans are put in place for every service user and individualised activity programs are created around the specific goals of the individual and the seasonal activity of the project.

Activity is primarily ‘hands-on’ practical activity that is suitable for a wide range of abilities and is a good companion service for those engaging with local college services working at the entry levels up to level two (or equivalent).

Prospective service users can self-refer if you have a personal budget or referrals can be made through the Stockton Learning Disability Team. (01642 368550)
