PROactive Management of Integrated

Services & Environments



David Williamson

Occupational Therapist, CPFT

I have been working for the trust for 3 years since qualifying as an occupational therapist. My key interests are around horticultural based activities, occupational performance and promoting sustainability through the use of meaningful activity           (gardening) and using the produce within meal cook sessions ( purposefully).  I currently work on the acute female unit at the Cavell centre.

Active Space – Horticultural Initiative

This short presentation will give you a snap shot into the work myself and the team are doing in regards to horticulture based activities, the therapeutic benefits of these for our service users and the graded skills pathway from the ward through to paid employment. It will touch on the achievements to date and highlight some of the challenges faced.
