How We Are Funded

Your Support

We are totally reliant on public support to meet the build and running costs of each Horatio’s Garden. 

Thanks to the support of generous donors we are able to improve the lives of everyone affected by spinal injury. Our Friends and individual givers make a real difference and any amount, no matter how great or small, helps to ensure that Horatio’s Garden will always be there for those who need it most.

Every year we host a variety of events in both the gardens and at various locations across the country to raise both money and awareness for the charity. We are very grateful to third-party fundraisers, who do everything from climbing Kilimanjaro to hosting a Fabulous Summer Tea Party in order to support the charity. If you have a fundraising idea, please do get in touch by emailing 

Horatio’s Garden really value their corporate partnerships. We are thankful to have the support of Bolt Burdon Kemp, Hozelock and Hugh James. If your business could help by sponsoring an event, volunteering in the gardens, becoming a corporate partner, making us your charity of the year, or encouraging payroll giving, please email 

Grants from numerous very generous Charitable Trusts & Foundations have ensured that we have so far been able to open six gardens, plan a further two and set our sights on planting hope in three more locations in the UK. 

We are especially grateful to our largest single funder, The National Garden Scheme, who have supported the creation of Horatio’s Garden Stoke Mandeville, Horatio’s Garden Midlands, Horatio’s Garden London, Horatio’s Garden Wales and Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland Northern Ireland and have made a commitment to funding a contribution to all future gardens. To date the National Garden Scheme have generously donated £405,000 to Horatio’s Garden.
