Friends of Twigs

Friends of Twigs is an independent charity which gives financial and practical support to TWIGS and the Olive Tree Café, two mental health projects in Swindon.

TWIGS (Therapeutic Work In Gardening in Swindon) provides horticultural and related craft therapy and the Olive Tree Café provides positive work-related opportunities for people recovering from mental illness – something that affects one in four of us at some time in our lives, directly or indirectly.

Both projects are run by The Recovery Tree charity and give people a chance to regain confidence, self-esteem and to learn new skills; the can be transforming: “TWIGS provided a lifeline when my life was filled with despair and hopelessness… I found the space and support I needed to believe that a different future was possible.”
