Bridge Wellness Gardens in Ellesmere Port proves a therapeutic environment, volunteering and employment opportunity for those with mental health issues and learning disabilities and difficulties. The project aims to address lack of employment for people with learning disabilities and difficulties, giving them mentoring and training and the opportunity to gain confidence, increase self esteem, gain lifeskills and interact positively in society with the aim of them going on to permanent employment either with ourselves in a sponsored post or elsewhere in the local community.

This raises self esteem, promotes confidence, allows for peer interaction and interaction with the general public. It also springboards them into the possibility of further employment.
