About with Friends make quality hand-made items for gifts or resale.

Our Made by Friends workshop is run by our Workskills members and their support staff who produce a range of items for one-off or wholesale orders.

Tom, our wood working and production senior support worker has many years’ experience as a master cabinet maker and teacher. Under his guidance our members turn out beautiful, quality products that will last for years to come.

A lot of our products are on sale in our community café in Tucker Street and our community shop in Garden Street.

 

We usually carry the following stock items:

  • Bird boxes
  • Hand-made candles
  • Hedgehog houses
  • Bee Boxes
  • Cushions
  • Aprons for children and adults
  • Pin cushions

We have also had commissions for:

  • 100 Port Holes for the Crab and lobster festival (You have probably seen them in many of the shops in Cromer and Sheringham)
  • 50 flat-pack bird boxes for the Museum of the Broads, Stalham
  • New wooden information boards for the Parish Council

What does it cost?

Costs vary since we are producing bespoke products to your specification. We are usually highly competitive!

Over the last five years I have had a fortnightly, 2 hour designated gardening slot. I highly value your service and ethos.

Thank you for taking K to Milton Keynes on holiday, it made her extremely happy. Selfishly, it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite after 16 years of constant care.

About with Friends and you particularly, have done some great work with excellent outcomes for D. I was particularly pleased to hear that you are working on integration with the Youth Group as I felt he would miss out on peer interaction if he didn’t come to college.

To all the staff at About with Friday, I had a wonderful time with you guys, and I want to say a big thank you for looking after me. Love from K.

I just cannot thank you enough for taking K my daughter so that she could have fun with her friends on holiday in Milton Keynes, […] it made her extremely happy.

Selfishly for me it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite exhausted after 16 years of constant care. Complete respite is dependent upon the knowledge that your child is in safe professional caring hands. The ‘about with friends’ staff impress me because they display such enthusiastic vocational attitudes towards their care.

I always have a smile on my face after a day with the members of the team. They are all individuals and each, in their own way, bring joy to my life. They are all much appreciated and I enjoy the gardening of course!

It was a massive decision for his family to make and by choosing AWF it means they trust totally in the service. I am of the opinion that AWF is the only provision in the county for D and he is very happy to attend.

A big thank you to yourself and the About with Friends staff for another great trip! J had a fantastic time, going on the Harry Potter Studio Tour, which he had wanted to do for ages and ages.

I haven’t seen D for ages and he looks like a new man . The stress has gone from his face – he looks great Well done !!!!

After 30 years of trying to get P engaged in activities, he is now, under your care, beginning to grow like a great Oak tree.
