Sydenham Garden is an established and unique wellbeing centre utilising its gardens, nature reserve and activity rooms and online services to help people in their recovery from mental and physical ill-health in Lewisham.
We aim to do this through providing co-workers (the name we give to our primary beneficiaries) an opportunity to take part in one of our four main projects, along with many supplementary activities and clubs. Three of these projects are focused on Adult Mental Health through gardening (including a social enterprise flower farm) and art & craft, with opportunities to achieve recognised qualifications. The fourth project is focused on Dementia and includes all the same elements but underpins them with Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST). It aims to promote inclusion and diversity throughout the organisation.
