Our Aims

Our vision is:

To create a society where refugees and people seeking asylum are included and respected as equals.

Our mission is to:

  • Use our gardens as a basis for creative activities which improve physical & mental wellbeing;
  • Provide a safe, welcoming and empowering environment;
  • Empower people to fulfil their true potential and contribute to society;
  • Build skills, resilience, confidence, self-esteem and purpose;
  • Provide learning opportunities, information and signposting to other resources;
  • Highlight the experience of living through the asylum process in the north of England;
  • Build relationships, partnerships and networks that enable collaborative working.

Our values are to:

  • Regard each person as unique and treat them with dignity;
  • Respect everyone regardless of background, and also age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion and race;
  • Place participants at the heart of all planning and delivery;
  • Be informed, constructive and robust in our work;
  • Protect, care for and enhance the environment.
