Breathing Places




If you’re thinking of rolling up your sleeves and signing up to help a Breathing Place, here are a few tales of transformation to get you in the mood.

This month’s project

The Rainbow Centre – Play away wild

This wonderful charity works with babies and children with cerebral palsy. It began in the home of founder Helen Somerset How and throughout the last fifteen years has moved from buildings with leaky ceilings to first floor urban offices. Finally they have settled in their new, lovely home – and a Big Lottery Fund award has helped them build a sensory wildlife garden for the children to enjoy.

Discover how an old railway line in hertfordshire has been transformed into a wildlife corridor.

Twenty years ago Roger Parkinson, a volunteer Tree Warden with The Tree Council, embarked upon a labour of love with his son to help the plants and wildlife around Thornes Common.

Find out how to create your own breathing place.
