Restoring mental health- one bench & conservation at a time.

Come together

Our big yellow bench was a familiar sight around Norfolk and Suffolk events last summer.

It's a stark contrast from the subtle restored benches we install in community spaces.

Our goal is simple; to encourage people to come together and have healthy conversations.

FESTIVALS & EVENTS

Restored & installed

Our benches are lovingly restored by individuals and community workshops. They represent the healing process that improving mental health can have upon our lives. Once fully restored our benches go to community spaces for people to enjoy.

Covid-19:
Social Isolation

The Lockdown periods of Covid-19 were a challenging time for many people. Social isolation and loneliness are not only linked to depression, but they also raise the risk of anxiety, cognitive problems, self-harm, and suicide.

Our goal is a simple but powerful one, to encourage people to re-connect and engage with others.
