Empowering Sussex through nature therapy
Tuppeny Barn opened in 2005 and they have been working with children of all ages to encourage healthy lifestyles through the promotion of healthy eating, physical activity, and wellbeing through therapy gardening.
Funding has helped empower local people physically, mentally, and out of isolation through the provision of a horticulture therapy project.
The project was designed with the idea of delivering different face to face activities allowing the participants to engage in their Nature-Nurture therapy programme. However, due to the pandemic they were forced to deliver their support differently.
They set up a Food Hardship Fund supporting families most in need. They provided, and delivered, free weekly food parcels to families with mental health support needs, disabled children, young carers or those suffering financial hardship.
