About Sweetpea


Providing nurture and care to vulnerable and disadvantaged children, children living with disability or life limiting medical conditions, parental substance misuse, sexual and domestic abuse, severe poverty and neglect. Ensuring children have the support and equipment they need – when they need it and in the way most accessible to them – so they can thrive.

Why Sweetpea?

Sweetpea (Lathyrus odoratus) is a flowering plant in the genus Lathyrus in the family Fabaceae (legumes), native to Sicily, southern Italy and the Aegean Islands.

It is an annual climbing plant, growing to a height of one to two metres (nearly six feet and six inches), where suitable support is available. The leaves are pinnate with two leaflets and a terminal tendril, which twines around supporting plants and structures helping the Sweetpea to climb. The flowers are purple, two to three and a half centimetres broad, in the wild plant, and larger and very variable in colour in the many cultivars. (Detail taken from Wikipedia)

So why Sweetpea Charity?

Because we are support for children. We work in partnership to provide support and structures to help children to grow, to climb and to achieve their own heights.
