We were delighted to support Suffolk Mind with a grant of £4,104 to enable the charity to offer gardening activities to people who are affected by mental health issues.
Our support has enabled the charity to provide weekly activity sessions at their four allotments to help people with mental health problems across Suffolk.
The project is open to anyone with mental health issues, participants do not need to be in mental health care services or have a formal diagnosis by a GP, anyone can self-refer to the project via Suffolk Mind, meaning the most vulnerable in the community can receive support and take-part in the activities without delay.
Sarah Manton-Roseblade, our Greencare and Ecotherapy Manager at Suffolk Mind said: "The grant from Morrisons Foundation will enable us to support our Greencare allotment groups across Suffolk."
"These groups aim to improve people's physical and mental health by gently increasing their activity levels, working alongside others to create a sense of community, and providing opportunity for participants to have meaning and purpose in their lives and gain a sense of achievement"
