Social impact

In addition to The Alnwick Garden itself, the Trust operates numerous award-winning community outreach programmes. These include:

  • Elderberries – supporting people aged 55 and over, particularly those who are lonely, isolated and some with early on-set dementia.
  • Grow Into Work – aimed at tackling unemployment and primarily working with young people to support their transition into work.
  • Roots and Shoots – working with schools to promote healthy lifestyles, teaching children how to maintain a garden through growing their own produce and using it to cook.
  • Young Gardeners – supporting children with additional needs, learning and behavioural difficulties along with their parents and carers.
  • Drugs Education – working with schools, youth groups, Pupil Referral Units, children in care and other relevant charities to deliver activities in order to tackle growing substance abuse issues.

Beyond the impact of these community programmes, the charity contributes significantly from an economic and social perspective to the wider region. Based on independent research, the Charity estimates that it contributed about £282 million to the local economy between 2002-2020, 40% of which was spent with local suppliers, and supported 2,800 jobs regionally.
