The Phoenix Trust (Milton) Ltd, which we abbreviate to just Phoenix, is a vibrant charity, founded in 2006 and situated on the outskirts of Cambridge, in Milton. We make a range of paving and garden accessories on site from both wood and concrete. Although we are small, we pride ourselves on making a big difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities or complex needs, through the provision of a meaningful experience of work and the development of social and life skills.

 

We are open to the public Tuesday – Friday

8:30am to 3.30pm

Please come and visit us.

Call 01223 420669 or email us for more information, or to place an order.

We are both a charity and a social enterprise, making a wide variety of products on site to sell to the public. Phoenix co-workers have the opportunity to work in three departments:

  • Factory - producing concrete slabs and garden ornaments.

  • Woodshed - making a variety of items ranging from picnic tables and garden benches, arbors and mud kitchens, to bird boxes, planters, trellises in all shapes and sizes and bespoke items made to order.

  • Kitchen - providing a daily two-course lunch for trainees, volunteers and staff. The kitchen team have also recently started a cake baking venture making delicious homemade cakes for collcetion from our site. Have a look here!

Our mission is to work towards a society where the contribution of everyone is respected and valued and our supported placements greatly improve the confidence, quality of life and self- fulfilment of our co-workers, whilst showing the general public and wider community what can be achieved within an inclusive culture and empowering environment.

Directions

 

We are a little bit tucked away so even in the days of sat nav, some old-fashioned directions may help.


If you are approaching Milton from A14 West/East or Cambridge City, take the Milton turn-off at the roundabout, then:

  • proceed towards the village

  • at the Tesco roundabout, turn right

  • at the Dulux paint shop, turn right (if you end up at Milton Country Park, you have gone too far!)

  • follow the road round, one bend to the left and then straight on along a bumpy road

  • come through the double metal gates at the very end.

You are also very welcome to call in via the gate through to Milton Country Park
