Calling adults with learning difficulties and their carers, we have a weekly programme just for you.

Every Monday we run an Abilities Programme here in the tranquil setting of the Garden Needs garden centre. Tucked away on the edge of Salford this is a relaxing and welcoming space where everyone of all abilities is welcome to get involved.

The Abilities Programme is a full day every Monday from 10am to 4pm and includes a lovely lunch and tea breaks.

We do a variety of activities from gardening right through to crafts. It can be just pottering around the garden enjoying the space but we also do planting, watering, nature walks and plant identification. When the sun doesn’t shine on us, we retreat to our indoor space where we do a variety of fun crafts.

This is a fun and varied programme which encourages learning and dexterity and is a great resource for learning difficulty adults and their carers to attend.

The cost for the day is £40 for each pair. We’ve seen many adults really progress through this programme and it adds a great aspect to the weekly routine.
