"Our online store offers a range of exquisite, unique handmade items, specially created by the people who attend Aspens' Roebuck Day Centre.

"These items are all made on site at Roebuck's studios in Hastings and make a truly special, one-of-a-kind gift.

"All profit is channelled straight back into Aspen's work to achieve its vision of a world where everybody has the opportunity to live life to its full potential."

Paula Taylor, Roebuck Service Manager

Our artists at work

A majority of individuals with high functioning autism and Asperger syndrome require some level of support throughout their lives. Without specialist support, further education and employment opportunities are likely to be out of reach for most of the individuals Aspens helps to support.

Aspens places a strong emphasis on developing individuals and equipping people with the skills they need to lead as independent a life as possible, as contributing members of their communities.

A key priority is preparing people for the world of work. Working in Aspens' Roebuck studios not only develops specific skills and talent in creating these wonderful pieces for sale, it also requires people to use their social and transferable skills, community skills, self-help, leisure and work skills. 

Made by Roebuck, for Roebuck

Every penny of the proceeds from the sales of these beautiful items is channelled straight back into the work that Aspens does to help everybody it supports to live life to its full potential.
