Our Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024

The Freedom from Torture garden, 'A Sanctuary for Survivors', will be a space of sanctuary and healing for survivors of torture.
With thanks to Project Giving Back, we're taking a Show Garden to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024. Explore this page to support us and find out how we've created a space of sanctuary for survivors of torture.

A Sanctuary for Survivors

The Freedom from Torture garden has been designed as a naturalistic space where horticultural therapy will help to heal and restore survivors of torture on their journey to recovery.

Designed with survivors of torture, the garden offers a curvaceous, immersive space where survivors can engage in therapy one-to-one, with family, or in a group.

After its showcase at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024, the garden will be relocated to our rehabilitation centre in London, where it will be used by survivors and their families on their journey to recovery.

Freedom from Torture: Our story

Freedom from Torture is a charity that supports people who have survived torture to heal, feel safe and strong again. Together with a movement of compassionate people, we speak out to expose torture and defend the rights of survivors, nationally and globally. Freedom from Torture also runs many creative therapy programmes such as cookery, art, gardening, music, and creative writing.
