Supporting adults with mental health issues and learning difficulties on our 'Growing Together' therapeutic horticulture sessions. Need to be able to support and empathise with people who have support needs in their recovery and development. Assist session leaders and enable clients to complete tasks assigned to them in order to reach their goals. Talk directly to clients about their health and progress. Will include help setting up and participating in the feedback at the end of the day or half-day. Some customer-relations will be necessary as the site sells its fresh fruit, veg and eggs when available. Will be opportunity to get involved in other events and occasions on or off site also.


Ability to communicate and take enjoyment from meeting and working with new people. Good skills relating to sensitivity, patience and acceptance. Some experience of working with adults with support needs or of gardening is desirable.
