September 2020

We are sad to announce that we will not be reopening Inspirations, following our closure during lockdown.  We do not feel we can meet the social distancing requirements, in the short term.  In the longer term it is planned that the shop will be converted into much-needed residential accommodation by the landlord, whose support we have greatly appreciated over our years in Dorking.
Please continue to support The Grange by visiting our on line shop at www.grangecentre.org.uk/online-shop.  You can also sign up, at the bottom of this page, for newsletters to hear the latest about our next steps in the world of enterprise.

Inspirations – a gift shop with more …

Inspirations is a small gift shop which does a great deal for people with disabilities.

We sell items made by locals crafters a well as our own hand-made cards and gifts. Most importantly, the shops gives a chance for people with disabilities to learn all the skills that go with running a retail outlet – from stock taking to dealing with customers and publicity.  

There’s nothing more confidence-building for a person we support than seeing someone buy an item they have made.
