Events and Opportunities

⭐️ Growing Together
Growing Together is a 6-week social prescribing pilot program that will build confidence and enhance the emotional and physical wellbeing of participants from in and around Haringey. Participants will develop green skills while, grow their own food, and develop their knowledge on healthy eating habits.

The essence of the program lies in creating a supportive, safe and inclusive environment. Members of the community living with challenges such as lack of mobility, isolation, depression and other forms of ill health are welcomed to connect with each other, build new friends and networks and feel empowered to make positive changes in their lives.

The initial 6 week program will be delivered through a combination of health and wellbeing workshops and community gardening. Each session will begin with check-in and end with reflection on learning. Communal tea and lunch activities are also an integral part of meeting this program’s objectives to enhance community connection and individuals’ sense of belonging, improving confidence and enhancing wellbeing.

The program will be flexible to the needs of participants, making changes depending on the cohort, maintaining a person centered approach.

Our partnership with Public Voice, Reach and Connect, Haringey Council, access to Navnet, and work alongside North London Cares, the local NHS services and Natural England will enhance the program's impact and reach. Expanding the support network of our participants as part of their progression.
