Charity Shop

Amwell View Charity Shop aims to provide meaningful work experience opportunities for young people and adults with learning difficulties. The shop is located in close proximity to the school meaning that students have the opportunity to walk to the shop with the support of staff. The shop will also support the school’s presence in the community and raise peoples awareness of learning difficulties. Donations received at the school will provide an extension to the curriculum for students aged 14-19 as they sort, clean and prepare items before transporting them to be sold at the shop. We are a registered charity (Charity number: 803181) and will use sales to contribute to the continued existence of the charity shop and provision. In addition to the much needed work experience opportunities we hope to provide a valued service for the local community.
