TACT is proud to be part of a collaborative of agencies that work together including – NAC Countryside Ranger Service, The Conservation Volunteers (TCV), Turning Point Scotland, Health and Social Care Learning Disability Team, and North Ayrshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership.
Eglinton Community Garden provides a range of therapeutic activities for community use and directly supports several client groups such as learning disabilities, mental health issues, ex-offenders, older people, veterans and people experiencing drug and alcohol problems. It provides all members of the community with learning opportunities related to gardening, growing food and cooking. It enables individuals to learn new skills, tools and coping mechanisms and promote positive changes in health diet and lifestyle.
The garden is used by our own Positive Steps team to provide a stimulating environment for their participants and provides a fantastic opportunity for a variety of activities.
