Grants for Gardening

How we can help

The Trust exists to help people continue to experience the joy of gardening, despite disability.    We do this by awarding small financial grants to help applicants to continue to garden actively – or, as our founder put it back in 1968 ‘ to get the soil under the fingernails’.    Our most common request is for raised beds and planting tables: we often pay for accessibility ramps, handrails for outside steps, adapted tools, polytunnels and much more.  Sometimes we simply pay for the seeds or bulbs to get the garden going again.  We are all about actively gardening.

Who we help and what we pay for

We help individuals, and we love to help groups, because that makes our money go further. People with all kinds of physical or mental abilities, in all parts of the UK, have been awarded grants from the Trust.

We rarely (almost never!) pay for decking, and we never pay for clearing, cutting down trees, general maintenance, provision of a gardener or fencing. 

You can check out our  Newsletter and Clients’ stories here for more inspiring ideas, or if you’re ready to apply head straight to our straightforward application process.

How it works

If your application is successful, we’ll talk you through the process as to what will happen next.  We usually pay the supplier directly when the work is completed, or send you vouchers which can be redeemed at a retailer close to you.  We’ll discuss with you the timing of the project, request photos of the work, and may even come and see it when it’s completed by way of follow-up.
