    Chesnut Nursery

    Gardening

    Caring for people, caring for plants. Chestnut Nursery is the second project of the registered charity the Sheltered Work Opportunities Project (SWOP)Chestnut Nursery is a project of SWOP (Sheltered Work Opportunities Project) which is a registered charity. Based in the centre of Poole, it provides voluntary work for adults with severe and enduring mental illness. The project aims to improve mental well being through the healing nature of horticulture. The nursery is open to the public from 8 am, so people who prefer to arrive earlier may do so, and have a hot drink before work starts around 9.00. Special arrangements can be made if you need to arrive later, for reasons such as childcare, picking up a daily prescription, or travel difficulties. You do not need to wait until 9.30 to use your bus pass, as fares are refunded.
    A member of staff will explain what you are going to do that day, and other volunteers will work with and help you if you wish. You will find the community very friendly and welcoming, remembering how nervous they were when they first started.

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.
