Health & Wellbeing
We provide opportunities for people to get involved in physical activity in their local environment. Often this may be the most accessible form of exercise for people intimidated by the culture of a gym or sporting club – walking or cycling, for example. The social elements also provide positive benefits in mental wellbeing and reduced isolation.
We also help our clients support people to grow their own food and pass on their skills and experience of food growing and preparation to less experienced members of their local community.
Our Active Spaces Programme provides opportunities for low intensity exercises: walking, cycling and triking, with the support and encouragement of trained staff and volunteers.
Our health walks are registered through the Walking for Health programme - supported by Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support.
We run all our cycling and triking sessions from our Offshoots Permaculture Project in Burnley, which hosts a range of funded programmes that tackle issues such as mental wellbeing, healthy eating and social inclusion. The site is an ideal setting to deliver eco-therapy activities that help people improve their mental and physical wellbeing and support people to be active outdoors.
Our customers work hard to develop their local communities and want to develop shared areas for the whole community to enjoy. They may be looking to develop a community garden, an allotment, herb garden or community orchard.
We offer a full design and build service with additional support from our sustainable gardening experts who offer training and support once the areas are up and running.
