The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) finds environmentally friendly ways to make people healthier.
One of the many things our charity does is make green spaces for local people to get better from sickness near hospitals and to stay healthy.
We have planted trees and made green spaces for community orchards and growing spaces, dementia gardens, green gyms and health routes.
A green site we recently did at Doncaster even includes an outdoor learning space so that local children can learn about staying healthy and protecting nature in the great outdoors. All of the sites make a positive contribution both to people’s wellbeing and the local environment, as well as fulfilling our charity’s aim of ‘greening’ healthcare.
For us, #givingtuesday is special because we get to share the work we do every day to give people greener and healthier lives. We keep pushing to make sure that healthy children have a healthy environment to grow and learn in!
