The Bradbury Wellbeing Centre is located in Durrington, Worthing. The day centre runs a service called Time Out for Carers which offers respite to dementia carers by providing their loved ones with activities, meaningful occupation and opportunities for socialising. The centre has a small garden where members can relax and enjoy the seasonal colours of flowers, vegetables and shrubs.

We are hoping to find a small team of gardeners who would enjoy some seasonal planting and keeping a watchful eye on the garden throughout the year. All tools, plants, compost etc... would be provided.


Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a complete novice we would love your help. The only skills and experience we require are:

  • Happy to be outdoors
  • Enjoy helping other people
  • Being part of a team.


  • Creating a garden that the day centre members can enjoy being in
  • Providing a rich mixture of sensory experiences with flowers, vegetables and shrubs
  • Good exercise and wellbeing
  • Learning new skills - 'what plant where'

Practical Considerations

  • Flexible hours to suit your lifestyle 
  • There is limited parking at The Bradbury Wellbeing Centre but on road parking close by
  • On a regular bus route.
