Stepping Stones to Green Gym

Organisation : TCV Scotland
Grant Amount : £ 26,772

Stepping Stones to Green Gyms will provide an opportunity for those previously involved in an intense, structured training programme self-referred through mental health services to experience working with other people unlinked to mental health services as a means of eventually joining mainstream conservation volunteering. TCV (The Conservation Volunteers) Green Gyms improve mental, physical and social wellbeing through participation in practical conservation activity. Having joint working days with a midweek volunteer team would ease the transition from mental health services to volunteering independently.
