People from all cultural and diverse backgrounds participate and enrich our activities. Our volunteer and training programs help people learn new skills, provides opportunity for social interaction and outdoor exercise. Environmental and food growing sessions encourage and develop awareness of organic methods and composting. Bangladeshi women, older people and families have their own mini allotments encouraging community integration. Our 5-a-side futsal pitch provides programs to improve health and well-being for young people as well as generating vital revenue from hiring. We provide respite from overcrowded housing in our Early Years drop in and weekend play provision for children.
