Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

Year 2 Awardee

Benches foundations

Type of initiative funded: Equipment


Key priority area: Prevention


Funding awarded: £1000


Project description:

The aim of the project is to place three benches around the Garthdee area to benefit the whole community but particularly those with mobility issues, health problems as well as people with buggies to have somewhere to rest when walking about the community. Garthdee has a large amount of hills and the benches are to provide respite, and hopefully, somewhere to stop and chat. We hope this will encourage more people with mobility issues to venture out of their homes, confident that the can rest when they need to, and engage more with the community on their doorstep. The benches will bring about both mental wellbeing and physical wellbeing benefits.
