Can you combat loneliness?

Loneliness is as bad for you as 15 cigarettes a day. 

Older people living in care are twice as likely to experience severe loneliness as those in the community. 

We are looking for friendly volunteers with interests in gardening and supporting people to help older people and people with dementia take part in gardening activities. 

You will volunteer alongside an expert Social and Therapeutic Horticulture Facilitator to help care home residents access all the benefits of taking part in fun activities outside in their garden. 

In return, Growing Support provides: training and support; the chance to learn new skills and have fun; an opportunity to support some of the most vulnerable members of your community and travel expenses.

Deadlines for applications: 26th January 2018.  Informal interviews: Tuesday 30th January 2018. Induction Training: Tuesday 6th February 2018.
