Creating an accessible and inviting space for people with learning disabilities to learn, exercise and enjoy a little bit of the great outdoors

Certitude provides support to person centered support to people with learning disabilities in Ladbroke Grove, in the shadow of the Westway. We support people to live their life, one of choice and control, connected to their wider community and valued for their contribution to daily life in this corner of West London. St Quintin's Avenue is home to 6 people with learning disabilities. It has good sized garden with lots of well established trees and shrubs. We'd like to revamp the whole area, cutting back trees to increase the natural light and putting down some turf, creating an area for people we support to enjoy yoga and other accessible forms of exercise. We'd also like to install some raised vegetable beds, right outside the kitchen window, supporting people to learn more about where food comes from and increase their interest in fresh produce and a healthy balanced diet.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install turf
  • Increase light
  • Grow fresh vegetables

Why it's a great idea:

People we support at St Quintin's Avenue share an interest in yoga, but nowhere suitable in the house to do it together. Installing a lawn, in place of soil and bark, creates an inviting area for people to use to get some exercise, while socialising and improving their physical and mental health. The area will also be used to foster other interests within the house, including painting and embroidery, which have been included in support plans to maintain the dexterity and strength in peoples hands, safeguarding their independence and reducing reliance on staff. The ultimate aim is that once established, we will invite other local groups to St Quintin's to join us, building links with the community and enhancing quality of life for people we support. People with learning disabilities are more likely to be overweight than the wider population, our fresh vegetable beds will build an understanding and enjoyment of fresh food and a healthy diet, improving physical and mental health.

Steps to get it done:

  • Cutting back trees
  • Installing turf
  • Building raised beds
