Sydenham Garden is a unique wellbeing centre utilising its gardens, nature reserve and activity rooms to help people in their recovery from mental and physical ill-health in Lewisham.
We aim to do this through providing co-workers (the name we give to our primary beneficiaries) an opportunity to take part in one of our four main projects, along with many supplementary activities and clubs. Three of these projects are focused on Adult Mental Health and include gardening, art & craft, cooking and opportunities to achieve recognised qualifications. The fourth project is focused on Dementia and includes all the same elements but underpins them with Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST).
We aim to promote inclusion and reduce prejudice by bringing together co-workers with different degrees of mental and physical ill health, volunteers and members of the local community to work together.
Sydenham Garden enables people to improve their quality of life, social interaction and physical and mental health in a supportive community environment.
