The National Garden Scheme is Perennial’s largest single donor having donated more than £1.9 million since the partnership began in 1986. This contribution makes a huge difference to the lives of thousands of people in horticulture and their families. In 2021 we donated £115,000 to Perennial.
Perennial helps anyone who creates or maintains gardens, parks, sports facilities, woodlands and other green spaces. If you work with plants, trees or grass, Perennial is your charity and can help you if you need support. Everyone working in or retired from horticulture can receive free and confidential tailored one-to-one advice, support and financial assistance from Perennial’s friendly, experienced and professional team for as long as help is needed.
The charity helps around 1,500 people and their families every year as they deal with life-changing events such as serious injury, long-term illness, family bereavement, redundancy or family breakdown. Last year Perennial helped people to access nearly £4 million in financial assistance and this year it hopes to reach more people than ever. People describe Perennial as a lifeline, no problem or question is too big or small, so don’t let something that’s worrying you become a crisis, call Perennial for help.
