Hi S= Community. Does anyone know of any good charities in the North West that could help make our garden more accessible.

Would really like to get our son out there in his walking frame this summer.

Thanks gang 🙏

    Hi Woodbine. Yes we've been looking but unfortunately it seens most won't cover garden groundwork.

    Have you spoke to your local council see if they can offer any help or point you in the direction of help ?

    It might be worth applying for TV shows like Garden Rescue.  I'm sure many people apply and only a few get through but even so.

    Heya @CPSparky and a big welcome to the community from me too!

    I can see everyone's jumping in to offer some ace advice, but I wanted to pop in and say hi. :)

    If you wanted to stick around and get to know people, I recommend our Coffee Lounge.  Or if you fancied some easy games, head on over to the Games Room. I hope to see you around. :)

    That program doesn’t do your garden for free. You need to have at least £3,000  to apply. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Ah, that's a shame. :(  

    Perhaps it was 'Love Your Garden' that did it for free.  Though I've just checked and they're not currently taking applications.
