Green Spaces Project of the Month

August 2004 - Twigs - Thera

Therapeutic Work in Gardening in Swindon.

Contact: Alan Holland, Project Manager, tel 01793 523294

In England's smaller towns, where Black and minority ethnic communities make up a smaller proportion of the population, it can be harder for green space projects to achieve representative levels of ethnic community participation. The Twigs project in Swindon, Wiltshire, is making good progress towards improving BME participation levels because there is genuine commitment to multicultural approaches and sustained effort embedded at every level throughout the organisation. White staff volunteers and service users are all willing to support one another in learning about the diverse cultures within their area. They are prepared to try out different ways of working in order to make their service relevant and appealing to Swindon's various ethnic community groups. Slowly but surely, they are building the foundations for lasting cross-cultural relationships, to support the well-being of all Swindon's communities.
