Ronan's Trust

Ronan's Trust provides nurture and support to those who have suffered a close family bereavement. Through gardening together, and having the opportunity to join our craft workshops we offer a nurturing environment in which families can "be busy together" with others in a similar position. Working together on the land and through crafts offers the opportunity for people to create friendships and reduce stress.
