Referred to Gorwel, Grwp Cynefin’s in house support provider, which provides a range of support services for older people, people affected by domestic abuse and homelessness, the service users’ wish was to make the garden more private to be able to enjoy family time in the open doors.
Osian Elis Homelessness Prevention Co-ordinator, Gorwel said, “The tenant was referred to Gorwel in December 2016 with complex health issues and rarely left the house. Being restricted to two rooms in the property Gorwel asked if they could assist to help make his garden more accessible.
“After sourcing materials and labour it was all hands on deck, with family members also digging deep, to complete the project. Today the garden is fully accessible to the tenant with large raised planters so that the tenant can plant flowers as well as a vegetable patch. A little play house has also been built so that the tenant can watch his grandchildren play in the garden.
“We can’t thank the local businesses enough for their generosity and support and for providing such a super end result. The garden has been completely transformed into a light and welcoming space and is now the perfect environment for the service users.”
