Based in Easingwold in York, The Boot Shop has provided high quality services to adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health support needs in a safe, community based environment for over 20 years.

We support people with disabilities to take control of their lives.

What do we do?

  • Transferable life skills
  • Person centred health and wellbeing workshops
  • Employment opportunities
  • Communication skills
  • Chances to set up, work and get paid from your own business

How does this work?

We used person centred approaches and active support to empower people to have more control over their lives by creating a personalised package that helps each individual achieve their goals and realise their potential.

We offer workshops in health and wellbeing, cookery, communication and drama. We run our own small business which all the people we support can take part in. Our business includes furniture restoration, textiles, card making, rural crafts, photography and business management.

People are free to choose as many of our business based workshops as they would like to attend which will determine how much they can earn from their own business.

The front of our premises is a small display/sales area where the public are welcome to view and purchase products we make.
