RehabCare in Bantry recently won a Rehab Group Innovation Award for its Woodland Walk project. This project won in the ’Green or Environmental Innovation’ category and was selected as a winner out of 64 innovative projects, which had been submitted from across the organisation.

This project involved the development of a woodland walk to support people’s mental health recovery. A quiet recovery-orientated space incorporating gentle walks to encourage light exercise was developed in the grounds of the RehabCare resource centre. This gave people the opportunity to develop an appreciation of nature and its surrounds while providing a quiet, peaceful place to meditate within a natural woodland area. It is dedicated to the memories of past clients and staff. The project also provides an area of conservation for the beautiful flora and fauna within the local community and an opportunity to protect and manage the heritage of the natural woodland of Bantry town and its surrounds.

Alison Steeds, Community Services Manager in RehabCare in Bantry, “The Rehab Group Innovation Awards reward examples of best practice, improvement and creativity in Rehab Group across all divisions and are designed to encourage employees and people who use the services to develop new ideas and projects. It’s great that our project has been recognised out of so many innovative projects across the organisation. Everyone in the centre works really hard to ensure that this project is successful and that it makes a difference to peoples’ lives.”
