- Gardening Group- A group which enables individuals to learn how to grow plants and vegetables in a safe and clean environment provided by Harlesden Town Gardens.

We will require further information about your needs to ensure that the services are safe and suitable for you. This may include a risk assessment being completed by a professional working with you.
A case in point
John started using Brent Mind services four years ago. He became a Peer Supporter and has co-facilitated a number of the groups that the Wellbeing services provide. He has also co-facilitated external training on behalf of Brent Mind. This experience has been integral in him being accepted to study at college and is undertaking a course which will earn him qualifications in the social care sector. His busy study schedule makes it difficult for him to volunteer at present but he still makes time to meet up with the BWW Mind Recovery Support Worker for additional support as and when he needs it.
