At Perennial we believe every child should have the opportunity to grow and flourish. We want every child to have a happy healthy childhood and be able to take part in the same activities as their friends. We understand that many parents and carers, despite careful budgeting, are worrying about meeting the everyday costs of raising a family. We know that if we get it right in the early years, children will thrive throughout school and into their adult lives.
Our friendly team provide support for families working in horticulture. They can help you access government support and provide you with the tools and resources to help you through many of life’s challenges that you may find overwhelming. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

One parent who received Back to School support for their children in 2019 said: “I am relieved and humbled that you have helped us with the children’s uniform and shoes. Thank you so much for your support and advice too. It feels financially overwhelming at the moment and we are grateful for this help.”
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help towards the children going back to school, I am so grateful for the help you have given, this is a massive help and the kids are so happy that they are able to choose their own shoes, bags , lunch boxes and coats.” Garden Centre Worker, August 2020.
