Covid-19 – update on current day services, 4th January 2021

Further to the Prime Minister’s statement on 4th January, we can confirm that Reach’s day centres will continue to open as planned. We have reviewed the government’s latest guidance relating to health and social care provision. Extra measures are in place to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities comply with latest government Covid-19 regulations and are monitored closely.

Our senior management team will keep the situation under constant review and our Centre Teams will be in touch with clients and/or carers in case of any change.

In addition to activities at our centres, our innovative and popular alternative service includes online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through online, telephone and face-to-face communication.

To find out more about current day services please contact Chantelle Welsher, Group Manager Client Services at chantelle.welsher@reachuk.org or telephone 07834 578704

Flower Pod is truly a unique facility - and one we are all extremely proud of.

A 1.5-acre site, surrounded by farmland on the edge of Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus, our horticultural social enterprise provides outdoor therapeutic sessions. Here, our clients (with the support of staff and local volunteers), grow and sell beautiful cut flowers, enjoy learning horticultural and floristry skills, and gain in confidence; building the capabilities needed for independent living.

Flower Pod also is a place to relax, build new friendships, enjoy physical activity and get close to nature.

This very special site also generates much-needed income for Reach through the sale of flowers to the community and beyond. Our flowers are bought for weddings, funerals, events and celebrations. We also make our own environmentally-friendly, natural petal confetti.  Flower Pod is hugely popular with customers who love being able to buy locally grown flowers whilst supporting Reach.

Click here to buy your bouquets, centrepieces and confetti today!

Flower Pod is available for hire to corporate clients and for events. We host corporate teams for volunteering activities. Organisations including Marks & Spencer, Experian and Boots repeatedly join us, with many more coming along throughout the year, all telling us how rewarding a day with us is.

If you would like to order your flowers, get involved as a client, carer, volunteer or donor, visit the Flower Pod site or call 01636 918271.

Find us at: Home Farm, Brackenhurst Lane, Southwell, Nottinghamshire, NG25 0QL. Call us on 01636 918271.

Flower Pod Centre Manager

Hello, I’m Jane…
There aren’t many mornings I wake up and think, ‘Oh no, I’ve got to go to work again’!
I am surrounded by great people, in a glorious setting, doing something I love.
Flower Pod embodies teamwork, commitment and a whole lot of fun.
Nurturing people is my passion – to be doing it in a garden? Dreamy!

BIG thanks to Ben and Matt of Minster Roofing for volunteering their time to fit a special liner to our nearly ready composting toilet. This waterproof membrane will allow us a living garden on the roof. Swanky or what?!
In the face of adversity, a small group of dedicated Flower Pod volunteers have been beavering away throughout the year and in all weathers, but fitting the roof liner at these giddy heights was a step too far!
Serious gratitude Minster Roofing, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Watch out for our loo story, coming your way soooooon!
