The Craft Work Project

The Craft Work Project carries out light woodland management (clearing/lopping/sawing), habitat creation. – as well as creative activities like path-making, outdoor cooking, and woodwork – from bird boxes, to benches to bigger constructions.

We have have awarded a Awards for All Lottery grant to help develop new provision for people with support needs. This is enabling us to explore co-production and the prospects of developing a sheltered enterprise – as well other new ideas for groups going forward. Contact us if you are interested in accessing.


We are have now become an accredited provider for Derbyshire County Councils Day Service Framework. The Framework is a list of providers who offer approved Day Services.
