Perennial is the UK’s only charity dedicated to helping everyone who works in horticulture, and their families, when times get tough.
Perennial provides free and confidential advice, support and financial assistance to people of all ages working in, or retired from horticulture. This help extends to spouses, partners and children.
A registered charity, the Jigsaw Trust was established in 1999 by a group of parents of children diagnosed with autism. In the same year it raised enough funds to set up the Jigsaw CABAS School, opening its doors to six children. Today the school has provision for up to 68 pupils, aged 4 to 19 years.
In 2012, the Trust opened JigsawPlus offering specialist day services and social enterprise provision supporting individuals over the age of 18 years with autism, continuing the same highly successful behavioural approach to enable learners to function more independently and create opportunities for them to take part in all aspects of community life and employment opportunities. Learners are supported to help manage anxiety, anger and other behavioural issues and to access a broad range of lifelong learning, social and leisure activities. Following a successful fundraising campaign, in early 2018, JigsawPlus moved into a new, larger Centre for Lifelong Learning on Dunsfold Park.
Additionally, the Trust has been operating a Social Enterprise; “Café on the Park”, offering a café and catering service to tenants on Dunsfold Park as well as providing a unique environment in which JigsawPlus learners can undertake a wide variety of work experience tasks within a safe and supportive environment.
