Work has begun to transform our garden

Work has begun to transform our garden

Work has now started to transform our garden into an inclusive environment.

For children like Ciaran, the garden will make such a difference. Ciaran is eleven and has Down’s syndrome, is a diabetic and has ASD and ADHD. Ciaran’s disabilities affect him in many ways; he finds it difficult to socialise and make friends and struggles in busy environments. He loves spending time outside and exploring in the garden and having a new purpose-built garden will provide huge both physical and mental health benefits.

The vision is that the new garden will accommodate a number of different activities and zones including:

  • Sensory Garden with edible plants and water features to stimulate the senses
  • Fully Accessible Playground which will include equipment suitable for the most physically disabled children to enjoy.
  • Grow your Own for all to enjoy growing vegetables that can be then used in the kitchen.
  • Quiet and Calm-many of the children suffer from sensory impairment so this area will provide a calm and tranquil space for storytelling or just some alone time.
