Green letterboxes

INNOVATIVE & COLLABORATIVE

Social isolation and loneliness are serious, yet underappreciated public health risks that can lead to depression and speed up cognitive decline in older adults.

​For this reason, we are working in partnership with Reach Out, Hertfordshire to ensure that our boxes are given to socially isolated older across Hertsmere, Watford & Three Rivers and surrounding areas.

Our Green Letterboxes suit recipients of all abilities, including those without an outdoor growing space. 


To enquire about any of our green letterboxes please email michelle@greenconnections.co.uk
