How we help
If your career aspirations are geared towards learning practical skills, getting out-and-about and also enjoying the outdoors, then Branching Out is the service for you.
Branching Out is our gardening and maintenance scheme. Our team will work with you, providing specific training, the opportunity to develop your skills across a number of different locations, as well as supporting you to build your confidence too.
In a safe environment, we will support with things like:
- Using a range of machinery
- Developing painting, decorating and landscaping skills
- Constructing different garden fixtures – like sheds and fences
We can also support you to gain a relevant qualification in this field too. This will go a long way to helping you to find a paid role suited to the skills you will pick up and learn with us.
At Branching Out, you will get the chance to develop skills across multi-locations, like:
- A range of Buckinghamshire Care services (such as our opportunities centres)
- People’s homes right across Buckinghamshire
- A variety of private companies who want to use this great service
And don’t just take our word for it…
Josh is a Branching Out client who has autism. He enjoys the outdoor lifestyle Branching Out offers and embraces the many different challenges gardening and maintenance tasks can bring each day.
Since receiving support through Branching Out, Josh has developed a number of new skills. This includes confidently using machinery like leaf blowers and hedge trimmers, as well as driving the Branching Out ‘pick-up truck’ to work locations.
Josh says: “It is the type of work I like. I am supported to work on lots of new skills.”
