Welcome to The Makery

A safe, supportive and empowering home from home for the local community.


Our Charity.
Our Community.

The Guardians Grow Charity started its roots as a community group, evolving and reaching charity status in November 2020, in the heart of the Covid 19 Global Pandemic.

Our Vision
Social justice, where poverty has been overcome. Equality for all. Living in dignity and security in their communities.

Our Mission
Serving our communities by providing services and projects that empower individuals and communities to thrive and reach their full potential.


On site we have:


A Gift Shop

We sell crafts handmade within the store and by the local community, we also sell gifts that have been donated.

A Cafe

Of which is affordable. We have a Pay-It-Forward system in place so you can buy someone else a drink who may not be able to purchase one themselves and spread a bit of warmth and care within our community.

Art Studio

We run many art & craft sessions and have a dedicated studio to hold them. It has been described as an inspiring, creatively decorated space for everyone!


What We Offer:

From crafts to work experience, we can help.
