“Turning environmental disasters into community dreams”
The charity also focuses on those living with mobility, health and disability problems, especially young people and those limited by age who help turn waste land into natural woodland for the use of others.
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 non-existent. Unfortunately, environments that have the opposite effect are rampant. This medical evidence is gaining momentum.
Working in conjunction with care homes, support groups and hospital staff the woodland provides a free safe retreat in a beautiful setting for those that need a sympathetic environment. Because of the documented evidence of age and the diagnosis of Cancer and other terminal illness’s the majority of our visitors are elderly.
The quality of care environments can greatly affect the experience of palliative care. We understand how the settings used by people affected by illness can have a significant impact on their support experience and on their ultimate journey.
