Hospital Beds is a social enterprise project, creating growing spaces for the community, while providing opportunities for skills building and the personal development of service users at North Manchester General.
The Hospital Beds project works with service users with mental health needs from North Manchester General Hospital. This programme builds on the success of Sow the City’s Green Minds project, funded by the Manchester Care and Health Commissioning Voluntary Sector. The project provides a range of benefits for the service users and the wider community. Participants develop life-long skills, links to employment, socialise and improve confidence and motivation. They are able to share these benefits with a wide range of new groups and communities. Take a look at this article on the Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust website for more details.
