COVID-19 Update Thu 26th November 2020

Our Growing Lives project has re-opened its doors and we are offering our services in line with UK Government Covid- 19 restriction guidelines. We are currently offering an opportunity for a reduced number of people to attend in person to enable safe social distancing. We are continuing to remain in contact with all participants.

Unfortunately at this moment in time we are not accepting new referrals. We are concentrating on re-stablishing engagement with current participants. This will be evaluated weekly. For more information about Growing Lives please contact us on or 01159 443 865 / 07714 791 098.

Growing Lives is a learning and wellbeing programme based in Cotmanhay, Ilkeston, which offers the following activities – horticulture, furniture up-cycling, arts and crafts, creative writing, relaxation and wellbeing, and cooking and healthy eating. We’re open five days a week from 9.30am until 4pm and we help to improve your health and wellbeing, as well as giving you more confidence and motivation to succeed in whatever you want to achieve!
