Covid-19 – update on current day services
Although Covid-19 still prevents us from delivering our normal level of service to people with learning disabilities, we have now started to offer carefully controlled, socially distanced activities at our centres to enable people to stay safe, well and connected and to address risk of deteriorating physical and mental health.
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.
We continue to offer our innovative and popular alternative service including online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through new online, telephone and face-to-face communication.
To find out more about current day services please contact Chantelle Welsher, Client Services Transformation Manager at email@example.com or telephone 07834 578704
To find out more about our support for unpaid carers please contact Catherine Shatwell, Carers Matter Manager at Catherine.firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07715648691.
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.

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!
Please note the timetable is subject to change and there is a waiting list for some sessions.
