Thrive Brown to Green

Greenspace improvement projects to NHS estate

The Thrive Edinburgh’s ‘Brown into Green’ project aims to transform places and spaces identified by health & social care staff across different settings into more nurturing environments to support staff wellbeing. Working in partnership with Cyrenians we have identified a number of sites across Edinburgh which include the following;

Access Place, Old Town

A shared garden space for staff and service users.

Castle Crags Home, Craigmillar

An outdoor seating area for staff.
