Programmes

Vocational Based Day Programme

Bainfield Gardens aims to provide an environment where people who face the challenge of coping with varying degrees of mental illness can come to a garden where the environment itself creates healing. This will be done through teaching work based skills in a gardening environment which has a Christian culture of encouragement and love towards each other. In turn, this adds back community and enjoyment into the consumers lives so that they will be able to transition back to the fullness of life.
