Branching Out

Following our very successful pilot for this group for young adults aged 16-25 we are seeking further funding to continue the project. Young adults who are interested in working outdoors, gardening, and the environment are still welcome to join our adult volunteering programme and access support from our Youth Work Manager, Nicky.

During the Branching Out project we enjoyed a range of activities, including learning new skills, finding out more about local wildlife and the environment, harvesting and cooking fruit and vegetables from the garden, and volunteering in the local community. We gained valuable work experience, provided references and helped with job/college applications, and supported young adults to achieve certificates and qualifications including: Duke of Edinburgh Award, John Muir Award and Open College Network Qualifications.

If you'd like to find out more about joining our volunteers is the Garden, or working toward your Duke of Edinburgh Award, speak to Nicky - 0191 200 4706 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
