The Royden Park Project provides opportunities for disabled people to gain training in Horticulture, Conservation and Woodwork in a supportive environment.
Royden Park comprises 250 acres of parklands wood and heath. The multi-faceted project offers opportunities up to City and Guild's Level 2 (NPTC) standards and has helped Royden Park Project win numerous awards such as the Green Flag Award, John Muir Award and also a commendation from the BBC RHS Tatton Flower Show.
In 2017 Royden Park Project was awarded the Silver Gilt Medal at the Southport Flower Show in partnership with Riviera Environmental Management.
