The Grow Hub

The place where great people and great organisations bring great ideas to life.

The Grow Hub provides the physical space for us to work with socially engaged partners who genuinely share our values. We believe that effective collaboration can bring about positive change and transform lives for individuals, families and communities.

We work with partner agencies and businesses to provide mutually beneficial services focussed on independent living by developing strong relationships and sharing knowledge.

Based in an established community we are housed within an all weather facility that has 2 acres of land and fabulous views across the Wensum Valley. We offer a range of person-centred services and activities based around outdoor education, healthy food, diet, exercise and lifestyle wellbeing.

While our activities and services are client-led our focus is on local need and the wider national picture. As a social business we feel it is our responsibility to take this wider approach by bringing improvements to social mobility and productivity and holding ourselves and our partners accountable for addressing realistic and achievable outcomes.
