Malton Fold which is a sheltered scheme for tenants who are
over 55 and live independently applied for a Community Chest grant to support them with
their gardening project, as the tenants wanted to start growing their own fruit
and vegetables and have an activity to work on all year round. On receipt of the grant the tenants were able
to purchase gardening equipment to start growing their own fruit and vegetables.
This grant promoted positive mental health and well-being for the tenants as
they were working outside in the fresh air exercising while gardening and
working together which reduced social isolation. This project meets the outcomes of five Community Chest themes: building community capacity, working for community change, developing pride in
where they live, enhancing participant’s wellbeing, confidence and social
skills, promoting inclusion within communities.
