Growing Support volunteers

Older people living in care are twice as likely to experience loneliness as those in the community.

Growing Support is looking for friendly volunteers with an interest in helping others to garden, to support their work with older people and people with dementia in and around Bristol.

You will volunteer alongside an expert Social and Therapeutic Horticulture Facilitator to help care home residents access all the benefits of taking part in fun activities, whenever possible, outside in the garden.

In return, Growing Support offers:

  • Training and support
  • The chance to learn new skills and have fun
  • An opportunity to support some of the most vulnerable members of your community
  • Travel expenses

If you think you can help please contact Sarah Mountford by 8th June.
