Care in The Garden
Care in the Garden is an organisation, which was set up to make a difference. We are creating work opportunities for those who need a little help.
Work Buddy Scheme
We provide supported work placements for those who need a little help in the areas of horticulture, woodwork, floristry and crafts. This may involve working on site at the nursery, out in the community, or at one of our partner organisations such as the Garlic Farm.
We aim to provide a safe and supportive environment for all our supported workers, so that they can learn new skills and be productive in the work place.
Depending on the task and the needs of the supported workers, our Work Buddies may work on a one to one basis, or with a small number of supported workers at a time.
If you feel that we may be the right provider to help you, please contact us for more information.
