In the summer of 2012 we have received funding from The Big Lottery to set up a new project we have named the ‘Flourish’ project that looks to support disabled people to flourish through land based and wellbeing activities.
This is a medium term volunteering project for approximately 6 months where participants will join a team for one day a week and gain practical hands on experience, skills and knowledge in conservation and horticulture. In addition there will be a programme of activities aimed at improving individual’s wellbeing.
The aim of the project is that over the course of a number of months each participant’s wellbeing, resilience, confidence, self esteem, skills and motivation will have all improved.
Throughout the process we factor in a goal setting and future planning processes with an aim that at the end of their time with us our participants are in a better position to move forward onto further volunteering opportunities, work experience or further education, which we will endeavour to assist with if need be.
Livability Holton Lee holds a broad definition of disability as someone living with a disabling physical or mental factor that has an adverse impact on their ability to carry out normal day to day activities. Ideal candidates for the Flourish project are individuals that are not currently in education, employment or training.
