The Hut York is a registered charity set up in 2011. It was created in response to an increasing need for day facilities in York. Since 2015 Emma has been our Service Manager, working alongside her is her team and a board of Trustees who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in the fields of Mental Health and Learning Disabilities.

The name “The Hut” came from one of our members who asked why we were called Clarence Gardens Associations when we looked like a Hut. We loved the thought and simplicity behind the name and it has stuck with us ever since. In July 2021 we expanded, and opened our new building “The Hubble”, which was also developed by our members. Our former activities coordinator Jonny curated all of the members ideas and came up with The Hubble as the building is a bubble just off the side of The Hut. The members took a vote on all the ideas they had come up with and this was the strong favourite that is now home to our ‘Wellness Club’.

We now have a little shop inside our main building – Hut Made at the Hive, staffed with everything made by our members, click on the link to find out more, Hut Made at The Hive Shop

We have developed an outside area that we can learn more about growing, recycling and nature in our project ‘Seed to Feed’ where will nurture seeds to grow, learn to look after and in the end be able to feed us.
