What can be done to help?
The idea is with the support of a patient led group we would like to create a small ‘Health and Well-Being’ garden with outdoor furniture and a gazebo for people across south Wirral with learning disabilities/autism.
We aim to support the five ways of well-being for this group learning through working with the garden. By connecting with others using the garden and reducing isolation in a safe environment. Staying active by doing physical work and walking will also help. As well as maintaining the garden for everyone to enjoy. Taking notice by encouraging mindful practice and having sensory elements incorporated in the space.
How we can do it?
· By raising funds to rework land, build outdoor covering seats and work with partners to build raising beds.
Why are we doing this?
People with learning disabilities and autism can struggle to wait and attend GP appointments and can find it stressful.
We want to offer patients the use of the gazebo to wait for appointments if they feel uncomfortable to enter a GP surgery.
There is limited dedicated outdoor space for people with learning disabilities in South Wirral. We want to co-create a space that they can build community and enjoy.
