Growing Support has rapidly become the leading provider of social and therapeutic horticulture activities to care providers across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Loneliness, social isolation and inactivity are nationwide issues. We aim to ensure every older person living in care has access to personalised and meaningful outdoor activity, starting with Reading in 2016 followed by Gloucester and East London in 2017. We will establish 30 new gardening clubs in care homes supporting more than 1,000 older people and people with dementia. We will recruit 120 new volunteers who will deliver nearly 3,000 of activity hours each year.
