About us

Bridge Community Wellness Gardens is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) based in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire and our mission is to “Grow Better Lives” for those in need.

Growing Better Lives

At Bridge Community Wellness Gardens, we provide a safe, therapeutic, and caring environment for individuals with lifelong learning disabilities or those struggling with their mental health and isolation.

Our mission is to "Grow Better Lives" for those in need, and we strive to improve and enhance the lives of people in our community who require help.

How we help

Our team provides work experience for the long-term unemployed and students with behaviour problems, helping them gain valuable skills and build confidence.

We pride ourselves on offering a welcoming and supportive environment that fosters growth and learning.

The feedback we have received from the people we support has been incredibly positive. Our community values the sense of belonging, companionship, safety, and opportunity that we provide.

Our support has helped many feel accepted, confident, and respected in an environment that wasn't previously available to them.

Meet the Team

Our team consists of a range of professionals with diverse skills and experience. We are passionate about our mission to help the marginalised in society, and we strive to create a safe and supportive environment for those who need it most.
