Lothlorien Therapeutic Community
Address:
Lothlorien Therapeutic Community (Rokpa Trust) Corsock, Dumfries and Galloway DG7 3DR 01644 440602
Hours: Full time post, initially live-in (37.5 hours per week) Relief positions also available
Salary: £18,321 - £22,968 dependent on qualifications and experience.

Lothlorien is a Therapeutic Community for people with mental health difficulties situated in a quiet rural setting in South West Scotland. We are looking to recruit a full-time male Therapeutic Gardening Co-ordinator for a one year fixed-term contract, and we also have Relief Gardener positions available. This is a dynamic and exciting opportunity to work within a Therapeutic Community environment. We are looking for a creative individual who can inspire our residents to connect with gardening as a route to recovery and wellbeing. The garden plays a central part in helping people connect with a sense of meaning and purpose in their recovery at Lothlorien Community. The person appointed will be coming into an organic vegetable garden with scope for innovation. We provide a structured gardening programme pitched at an appropriate level for people in recovery from mental health problems. This can have a very positive effect on mental wellbeing by having a grounding and healing effect, as well as providing people with the opportunity to develop their self-esteem, confidence and skills when working towards recovery. The therapeutic and relational aspects of the work are more important than being goal-orientated. Working with residents to foster a sense of participation, belonging, inclusion, mutual respect, at a pace and level with which they are comfortable is key.
