Scotland Partnerships

We welcome partnership working and support other initiatives which bring benefits to communities in Scotland. Please contact us if you are interested in working together. Our partners in Scotland include:

Trellis

The Scottish charity that supports, promotes, and develops the use of horticulture to improve health, well-being and life opportunities for all. Trelllis works with many therapeutic gardens. Until June 2012 FCFCG worked with Trellis and the Allotments Regeneration Initiative (ARI) on the Big Lottery funded Growing Communities in Scotland project. Although the funding for this project has now finished, we continue to work closely with Trellis to offer joint networking and training events. 


Scottish Community Alliance

FCFCG in Scotland supports this informal alliance of national and regional networks, local community groups and individuals that has come together to campaign for a strong and independent community sector in Scotland. LPL has two main functions: to promote the work of local people in their communities and to influence national policy development. We email regular briefings to our supporters on both these themes.


Garden for Life 

A partnership of organisations working in Scotland to increase enjoyment and understanding of biodiversity, support action by gardeners for the benefit of Scotland's biodiversity and to promote the benefits of gardening for health and well being.
