To provide a safe and secure working environment where people with learning and other disabilities can build up their self respect and confidence levels so as to be able to work and interact within our community.
Guernsey’s Rural Occupational Workshop (GROW), the first in the Channel Islands, was founded by the Guernsey Society for the Mentally Handicapped (now Guernsey Mencap LBG) and officially opened by the then Bailiff Sir Charles Frossard on the 14th July 1984. Our function is to provide training and a sheltered work environment in horticulture for people with a learning disability.
