Cancer: What are the main charitable activities?
Eden-Rose Coppice Trust Ltd in Sudbury, Suffolk is the first project of its kind in the UK where woodlands are used as a free sanctuary for people living with Cancer or terminal illnesses.
Medical evidence states that many of the most effective settings for recovering from fatigue or illness involve the natural environment. Such restorative environments are in short supply in many urban areas, if not nonexistent. Unfortunately, environments that have the opposite effect are rampant. This medical evidence is gaining momentum.
Funded Positions: Plans
We wish to develop a funded position to develop the planning and utilisation of the site. We aim to further develop the vocational opportunities for young people with severe learning disabilities in line with recent 14-19 reforms and the development of vocational learning.
Secondly, devising a further programme of valuable tasks for a greater number of people is a priority as a consequence of demand. We aim to further reflect the programme of planned tasks reflecting the seasons and matched to abilities dependent on the level of profound and multiple learning disabilities we aim to encouraging photographic journals as part of ASDAN portfolios and provide the necessary equipment to achieve this.

Evaluation: Our Charity & special needs
Whilst number of attendees is a clear indication of the success of our expansion, the quality of outcome is important. We intend to work closely with the carers and special schools in coordinating tasks and the success in ASDAN achievement of individuals. Outside of the ASDAN accreditation simple development will be monitored with joint support of the carers and staff who attend with the young people.
How do we make sure that all our activities are open to people who might want to use them?
We are aware of all special needs schools in the catchment’s area. Marketing material is currently being designed to target these schools in preparation for our planned expansion even though word of mouth seems to have been successful. A regional newspaper has agreed to run an editorial on the positive outcomes of Eden-Rose Coppice targeting carers and institutions alike. We operate an open policy of involvement only limited by the size our first woodland retreat and safety issues.
Our team regularly visits hospitals, support groups, surgeries and takes part in talks and lectures regarding our charity.
Eden-Rose Coppice Trust Ltd in Sudbury, Suffolk is the first project of its kind in the UK where woodlands are used as a free sanctuary for people living with Cancer or terminal illnesses. However the intrinsically linked and main usage of the sanctuary is for young people with learning disabilities, life limiting or behavioural problems or physical disabilities who work with mentors or carers and develop the site for our palliative care visitors. This integrated approach improves outcomes for both groups.
This is about giving young people with disabilities, serious illness or living with behavioural or physical problems, the help, motivation, care and skills they need to lead a healthier and more fulfilling life and provide an unquestionable sense of satisfaction in helping those with terminal or serious illness.
