Below is a selection of Frequently Asked Questions about visits to Lindengate. Please look at our Useful Information for more information before you visit.
Our Rest & Reflect programme is a free drop in session, where you will be asked to complete a Track & Trace form and have your temperature taken, as well as use hand sanitiser, before entering. Face masks and gloves are not compuslary to wear, as the gardens are all outside.
For all other programmes, please contact your Care Coordinator, GP, social worker or other health care professional who will be able to refer you to Lindengate.
In line with updated government guidance, you must not visit Lindengate in a group of more than six people (unless in one household or support bubble, or as part of a booked visit).
Your health and safety are our top priority so, as you’d expect, we’ve introduced a few changes.
Here’s our commitment to you:
We’ve limited visitor numbers so that social distancing can be maintained with confidence.
We’re following the Covid-19 government safety advice for all visitors and staff to achieve the highest standards. We assess guidelines daily.
We have new operating procedures, cleaning schedules and one-way systems to help manage social distancing.
You’ll see some staff wearing personal protective equipment so they can work safely.
It’s up to you help keep us safe too:
Maintain your two-metre social distancing – that’s one and a half wheelbarrows, two average garden spades…
Ensure that, in line with updated government guidance, you must not visit Lindengate if you feel at all unwell, are showing signs of COVID-19 symptoms, or are currently shielding.
Keep those hands clean!
We require that visitors wear face coverings at Lindengate, only if using our toilet facilities as all other areas are outdoor spaces, in line with government guidance.
Welcome to Lindengate Mental Health Charity
Lindengate Mental Health Charity is located at a stunning five-acre site in Buckinghamshire, where nature breathes new life into anyone who is struggling with their wellbeing. The garden lends itself to supporting people in recovering from a range of common mental health needs. The natural beauty and richness of the site help to restore and heal, whilst specialised gardening, conservation, construction, cooking, and nature based art and crafts activities provide focus and purpose. Add to this the community of volunteers and staff who nurture a supportive, inclusive and safe environment and you have a recipe for success.
We are currently working towards having all our services up and running and adding new services, but as we continue to meet Government guidelines to keep everyone safe, we will only be able to open for anyone who needs additional support when we have the resources and capacity to do so safely. Please take a look at our programmes to see what support we are currently able to offer.
