Run by Kaleidoscope, the charity that facilitate Well-Being in the centre. The service researches therapeutic support available in the community across the country for people post-release from Yarl’s Wood for on-going support and helps connect people up with that support.
At the heart of our work lies the cultivation of a healing community through which people can overcome the legacy of trauma. This sits alongside an integrated programme of therapeutic and casework assistance. We work at depth and intensity over the long-term to support each individual in their journey towards healing and to help them to integrate into the UK.
The community garden is in Islington, North London.
