Broadway South Allotment site visit

The CCG was approached last week by the Broadway South Allotment Committee after watching a Mental Health Feature on Gardeners’ World. We met and invited colleagues from Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership Trust including Exerts By Experience, Walsall Link Line and informed other colleagues such as trust OTs, TALCS and Accord’s commissioned Dementia cafés.

Occupational Therapists, Link Line, the dementia cafés and the Therapy and Liaison Community Service have expressed an interest in running groups from the site. The Broadway South Allotments Committee have been through the CCG’s Dementia Friendly Communities Programme delivered by Accord Care and Support and are applying for National Lottery funds to improve the facilities at the site.
