Our History as a Social Enterprise
Choose2 was set up by Rachel, Steve and Zoe. All come from a youth work background and have over 50 collective years of experience working with young people and adults with disabilities and additional needs. Rachel, Steve and Zoe aim to use their knowledge and experience to create purposeful opportunities that meet each individual's needs.
We are a not for profit social enterprise working with and supporting children, young people and adults with disabilities and additional needs across York and North Yorkshire. We offer a variety of programmes, activities and sessions.
As a not for profit organisation we reinvest any profit back into the company so that we can increase our offer and buy any specialist equipment to enhance our members experience whilst working with us.
Our aim is to support and enable disabled people to reach their full potential by working with them and for them in a variety of ways, actively involving them in creating opportunities which focus on their personal and social development.
This includes settings such as youth clubs, short breaks and social events. Volunteering opportunities, education programmes which can be accredited and work placements. Social care packages, holiday provision and Inclusive Duke of Edinburgh.
