We’re delighted that work on a sensory garden in our Wheatfield Short Break Service is now complete. The communal garden, which was funded by The Big Lottery’s Awards for All scheme, provides the people we support with opportunities to have tactile and sensory experiences through the cultivation and simple enjoyment of a wide variety of plants.
Speaking about the sensory garden, our Chief Executive, Agnes Lunny, said: “The garden provides a safe and secure environment where the people we support can relax and spend time with others supported by the Service if they wish. This stimulating space enhances the experience of those staying in the Service. We can’t thank The Big Lottery enough for supporting this Project.”
Our Wheatfield Short Break Service provides short breaks for people with a learning disability and autistic spectrum condition aged 18 years and over. For more information on this Service, please contact Service Manager, Bernice Kelly on 028 90183277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
