Horatio’s Garden is a national charity which creates and nurtures beautiful, fully accessible gardens in NHS spinal injury centres to support the mental and physical rehabilitation of everyone affected by spinal injury. 

Each stunning sanctuary is home to a thriving community and the charity’s outstanding, carefully designed gardens are a source of vital support for patients, their loved ones and NHS staff throughout long stays in hospital. 

Leading landscape designers create the gardens and each one is cared for by dedicated volunteers, who are led by a Head Gardener. They tend the garden, warmly welcome everyone spending time in the sanctuary and support the therapeutic activities run by the charity. The charity aims to bring a Horatio’s Garden to all 11 NHS spinal injury centres in the UK.


Every Horatio’s Garden has a team led by a Head Gardener, supported by a garden administrator and a dedicated team of volunteers who work together to nurture the gardens, with regular advisory visits from the garden designers.
