HMP Dumfries - Wellbeing Garden

It's Your Neighbourhood logo
Certificate Level 5 - Outstanding

In 2018-19, HMP Dumfries worked in partnership with local NHS and Care Holmes to provide gardening activities to those living with Dementia. The lessons learned from this successful project encouraged staff and individuals supported by Trellis to design and build a Wellbeing garden in the grounds of HMP Dumfries. HMP Dumfries has a varying population who now have the opportunity to take advantage of the Wellbeing Garden to stroll, sit or take part in gardening activities, all with the aim of improving individual’s mental health and wellbeing. The Gardens also actively work on promoting activities that support the environment.
