Growing Support CIC

Growing Support’s services are designed to enable older people and people with dementia to enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits of being outside, gardening and growing their own food. Everyday gardening activities are adapted to ensure they are accessible to everyone. A particular focus of the activities is stimulating social contact, a sense of belonging and of achievement. Weekly ‘gardening clubs’ are delivered in the gardens of care homes’ supported by trained community volunteers. Growing Support train care home staff to embed working outside in the garden into residents’ every day routine and provide advice, guidance and action planning to enable care home managers to make the most of their outdoor space. We are currently looking for more volunteers to help us run the sessions. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about what's involved at [email protected] or check out our website and look under the Get Involved section.
