The Haven is a registered charity providing support to people affected by a range of life limiting illnesses such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease and dementia and will signpost others to services appropriate to their needs. 

The role of a Gardener is to maintain the outside garden area located at the front and back entrances of The Haven. Routine gardening work: weeding, planting, watering and keeping the raised beds tidy, providing interest and colour throughout the year.

You will come into contact with clients as they walk through the garden to The Haven.
