Alive has been gifted an allotment by the kind people at Charlton Road allotments in North Bristol. Over lockdown, a team of volunteers has worked tirelessly to turn a barren plot into flourishing allotment, though to be able to use the space to support those living with dementia a small amount of funding is needed to provide suitable toilets. Anything over our goal will be used to build sheds to socialize in and store our equipment. Anything more will be used to pave parts of the allotment to make it more accessible.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The project will benefit those living with early-stage dementia and their carers by providing a positive space for them to meet people in a similar situation. Our facilitators will allow people living with dementia to benefit from the positive impact of gardening without the pressure of maintaining a whole garden. In the meantime, our social hut will provide rest bite and signposting to support their carers.
