In 2018 the National Garden Scheme Trustees voted a grant of £85,000 to make a major contribution to a brand-new Outdoor Learning Centre for Treloar’s, the Hampshire school and college that enables education for disabled children.

In July 2021 the new centre was opened by Treloar’s Patron, Alan Titchmarsh who said, “It was such an honour to be there and to be part of it. Outdoor learning is vital for our health as individuals and as a community, and Treloar’s are a wonderful example of how that connection with nature can be achieved and how it benefits us all. I hope the garden thrives.”

This really shows the NGS “at work”. At Treloar’s they concentrate on the students ability - not their disability. To read the full report click on the link
