Objectives

We are a charity supporting people living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities to go beyond expectations. We believe that, wherever they are, everyone has the right to an independent and fulfilling life. Our support, advice and training enables people and their families to build skills, develop confidence, help each other and look forward to a more positive future.

Volunteers are involved in many services across Henshaws and make a vital contribution to us achieving our aims. 

Activities

Specialist College

Henshaws Specialist College in Harrogate is a transformational place. Through our personalised approach to education, learning and care we empower children and young people living with a disability to progress and live life the way they want.

Whether preparing for employment, making friends or learning to live more independently, we enable our students to make their aspirations possible and goals a reality.

Arts & Crafts

At Henshaws Arts & Crafts we make more than art. We bring people together in an atmosphere that never fails to inspire.

Through our workshops, people living with a range of disabilities discover their talents, put them into practice and realise their full potential.

Community Services

Independence and friendship are at the heart of everything we do.

We work with people of all ages, both children and adults, living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities. We aim to empower them to take steps to change their lives for the better.

Housing & Support

Henshaws Housing & Support enables people of all ages living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities to live more independently.

Whether in one of our houses, or in their own home, we provide support so that people can build skills, make their own choices and be part of their local community; develop connections and lead a more fulfilling life.
