Geographical remit: 


Growing Support is an award winning social enterprise tackling loneliness, social isolation and inactivity.

We deliver “social and therapeutic horticulture activities” for older people.  This means we run weekly gardening clubs, supported by trained volunteers, where older people are enabled to work together in the garden, grow their own food and connect with nature. Activities provide sensory stimulation, exercise key muscle groups, increase social interaction and promote a sense of purpose and achievement.


Growing Support is a small community based organisation whose volunteers make a big difference. Volunteers are key to our ability to enable older people to be more physically and socially active, spend time outdoors and enjoy working in the garden.
