Alice, Healthwatch Southwark's Research and Intelligence Officer says:

" My garden is quite small and the sun is blocked by surrounding buildings, but it's the first time I've had outdoor space living in London and it's made a huge difference to my mental health.

I realised how essential it was in the first lockdown, when I had no outdoor space available at all. Now I love pulling out weeds, re-burying the bulbs that the foxes dig up, and drinking my coffee outside.

I love living in a city and seeing green - it helps relax my mind. "
