Growing Health

Growing Health was launched in 2013, and helps adults with learning disabilities to support each other towards leading more active healthly lifestyles. Please open or download this two page A4 leaflet for further information.

The Growing Health Lunch Club is a new addition to the project, set up in spring 2016 with funding from CDA Herts Innovation Fund. Find out more in this article by Project Manager Liz McElroy documenting how the project came about and how it's been progressing.

Volunteers at our Ability projects are an invaluable source of support. Their commitment and enthusiasm enables our gardeners to do so much more. Volunteering offers the opportunity to make a real difference, to develop new skills, build on existing experience and knowledge, and to reap the social benefits of meeting new people, making friends and getting to involved in the local community.

If you would like to help support our Ability projects on a regular basis, you will need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This is to make sure that the vulnerable people we work with are in safe hands. We will guide you through the form and pay for the process.
