About us

Our values

Welcome to The Shoebox Enterprises CIC! We are leading the way in creating inspiring, supportive and entrepreneurial solutions to build resilient communities and empower local people to make their mark on the world.

We create supportive environments for people to connect with each other and opportunities to find fulfilment.

The Shoebox Community Hub offers volunteer and work experience opportunities, community and support groups, room hire, events and much more.

The Shoebox Experiences offers exciting, unique experiences where customers can make great memories together. If you’re looking for a fun challenge why not try our thrilling Secrets of the Tunnels escape game or for intrepid explorers who are curious about Norwich’s rich history and the legends of secret tunnels, underground prison cells and more our Hidden Street Tour is sure to not disappoint! If the great outdoors is your thing, then join us for a walking tour and take in the sights of Norwich as we explore more of the history of our fine city.

All profits from The Shoebox Experiences support our community work and projects.

Social Impact

Last year, we saw considerable growth in our Shoebox Community membership. Each new member brings fresh passions, skills, and a desire to meet new people and connect with their communities through our growing range of peer support groups and community activities.
