Greenlinks is a community support group offering people with mental and physical health issues the opportunity to engage in gardening activities linked to the five ways to wellbeing (connect, be active, take notice, learn and give).
Some people go to church. I am not religious but I find this a very spiritual place.
Contact with nature and physical activity in a facilitated, structured and safe way have given vulnerable people therapeutic benefits. By increasing participation and awareness, our Greenlinks scheme has improved health and wellbeing for individuals, enabled resilience, helped build up an individual’s capacity to cope with life stresses, and helped people move from social isolation to a place of having connections and friends.
