Dementia Gardening Co-ordinator at TWIGS

Do you have experience of gardening and horticulture?

Do you have knowledge, training, experience of working with people with dementia and their carers?

Would you like to be part of a forward thinking, innovative team?

Here at TWIGS we work with people with mental health conditions and provide a level of support and training to help them gain skills, confidence and self-esteem and have been doing so for 21 years.
They are looking to employ someone to organise, plan and ensure effective delivery of regular gardening activities to people who suffer with dementia and their carers, as well as a range of adults experiencing a broad range of differing mental health issues. This project is available for two sessions a week for 32 weeks of the year between mid-March and mid-November on Wednesdays and Fridays.

13 hours per week to be worked from 9.30 – 4.00pm Wednesday and Friday

Over the past year trial courses have been run for people with dementia and their carers, staff have received appropriate training, lessons have been learned and funding successfully applied for. They are now in a position to employ a suitably qualified person to manage and help to deliver this work.
