A Sensory Garden

sensory garden could provide outside space in which, Residents of Bevern View in Barcombe, East Sussex  could spend precious time with their families. Right now thats impossible because there is no outside garden space they can use.

Our Cause

People with profound disabilities at Bevern View will feel an immediate benefit from a new sensory garden in which they can experience person-centred care with the freedom of being connected to the natural world. An area of tarmac and concrete (25m x 15m) is in urgent need of revitalising to give our residents a more positive and pleasurable environment in which to live.

Your Help

As a charity ,The Bevern Trust need your help to raise an estimated £46,700 to transform this area in to a garden of both tranquility and stimulation for people with complex needs.

 

Planning & survey and removal of hardstanding and tarmac:………………………………………………………£ 8750
Design and prepare foundations for a garden allowing access for all and reinforcing boundary wall: .£ 4350
Foundations, materials (sensory garden plants) and labour:……………………………………………………….£26,000
Furniture and sheltered areas for carers and families, sensory garden materials,
water feature and replacement fence:………………………………………………………………………………………£ 7600
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………Total:   £46,700

Help us transform this area in to a space for our residents to enjoy and spend precious moments with family and friends.

We aim to secure funding for the sensory garden through grant making organisations but it is anticipated that we will need to raise at least £16,000 through voluntary donations.

Impact on Bevern View

Bevern View provides a loving home for nine people with profound disabilities and two beds for vital respite care.

Our vision is to create an environment where residents have more opportunity and freedom to access outside space, something which many of us take for granted.
A specifically designed garden will play an important role in helping our residents improve motor skills, encourage communication and stimulate

sensory awareness.

Outcome for Residents

  • –  The sensory garden will support residents and their families in having the opportunity to enjoy a closer connection to nature
  • –  Provide visual and tangible elements that they might feel, taste the food we could grow, and flowers they can smell and see
  • –  A sensory garden will give the residents of
    Bevern View a place where they feel safe and secure
  • –  Encouraging interaction with each other and the wider community by engaging more volunteers and businesses to support the project
