The Maxwell Centre - Every1's Garden
The MAXwell centre’s aim is to maximise local communities potential for being well, feeling well and doing well. The centre is vibrant and well utilised by groups and individuals, young and old. It offers access to legal and welfare rights advice, job clubs, IT4 work classes, workshops, craft and vocational sessions as well as local councillor surgeries.
The community garden project has rejuvenated a derelict builder’s yard to become a fertile garden area.
The garden (Every1’s Garden) offers people from this severely deprived area the opportunity to grow their own vegetables in a safe, nurturing environment. The project encourages exercise, healthy eating and community participation.
