Growing Well

What we do

We work with adults in Cumbria and North Lancashire who are experiencing mental ill health. Individuals attend the service on one day per week (9am-4pm), which sits within a six acre organic horticultural enterprise. The usual length of stay with us is between 6 months and 2 years.

We offer activity as a powerful alternative (or accompaniment) to talking therapy. Where sometimes there just aren’t the words, our activities provide a unique context for discovering, understanding and communicating personal needs, and strengths. In our occupationally-focused approach, the activity IS the therapy.

We offer a range of supported, meaningful activity and training, all based around participatory work on the field and in our kitchens.

When working with our volunteers (our beneficiaries), we focus on three, vital objectives:

  • Building emotional resilience
  • Developing life skills
  • Supporting healthier, more active living
