Northumberland Horticultural Skills Units

Northumberland horticultural skills unit

The horticultural skills unit offers skills and work experience in horticulture to adults with learning disabilities living within Northumberland.

The service aims to promote independence and pride in achievement.

Each individual is fully supported to use the service by our experienced staff and allocated a key worker.


The needs of the person and support given are detailed in a comprehensive care plan and personal risk assessment. 

The service is provided by Northumberland County Council and managed by Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust.

There are three locations, each providing a similar horticultural skills experience within Northumberland at Hepscott Park, Tynedale and Sleekburn.
