We supported Members at the Kingswood Trust by connecting them with volunteers and other VCSE groups for their ‘Nature Connections’ project. In the project older people take part in nature-based activities with an aim to combat loneliness and reconnect people with each other and nature.
Chair of the Trust Board, David Harris said, ‘Already we have seen many older people regain a sense of confidence from these activities. Our volunteers here with many years’ experience at Kingswood Trust lead nature walks and show visitors different plants in the garden, places of historical interest and answer any questions they may have. Carers accompanying the group benefited from the experience too as they were also supported by staff and volunteers.’
