Self-Directed Support

SAGE Greenfingers welcomes new members with a personal budget!

Wednesday 11am - 2pm (Includes Lunch)

If you have a personal budget to help support your mental well-being you may want to join in our gardening and arts activities. 

The session runs each week on: Wednesday 11am – 2pm (includes lunch).

We can provide gloves, gardening boots, waterproofs and tools.

The cost for each three hour session is £40.

The session consists of meeting over a hot drink to decided what to do and then getting involved in gardening (as energetic or light as suits you); planning and cooking lunch for the group from the organic fruit and veg we grow; varied arts and crafts activities; occasional trips out (local countryside, cafes, garden centres etc.)

We welcome up to 12 people per session and have a minimum of 3 staff (plus volunteers) supporting each session.

You can work independently, with one to one support as part of small groups. You might want to come for just a few weeks or several months – depending on what works for you.

We will phone you to remind you about the session each week and organise transport if you wish.
