People on the GM Housing First pilot have been able to get involved with some gardening thanks to the social value programme at lead partner Great Places.
Forbes Solicitors, contracted by Great Places for legal services, have committed £2,500 to the pilot, some of which has been set aside for the gardening project which allows people on the pilot to access equipment to support them gardening.
The applications we have had so far have been support gardening within their homes and in gardens.
Gardening is a great way of developing organisational skills, while giving our residents an understanding of how to maintain their home and take pride of it.
Thanks for Forbes for their generous contribution that has helped create value within the communities they work in.
