Taurus Crafts

Get to know us

Taurus Crafts provides work and training opportunities for the people we support, developing new skills, building confidence and enabling people to participate actively in the community.

We’re a centre of excellence recognised for working with people whose needs are not well met through mainstream education and employment programmes.

The people we support are at the heart of all we do, and Taurus Crafts is a place where people’s skills can shine.

At Taurus Crafts, people we support are involved in all aspects of our award-winning centre. Trainees serve in our shops and develop their hospitality skills in every area of our café. Our beautiful, artisan gifts and imaginatively designed cards are made by people with learning disabilities as is the crockery we use in our café, which is hand-thrown in our pottery at our nearby Grange Community
