A charity that I support, and which I recommend to Shoot members, is Thrive. It's website http://www.thrive.org.uk/ says "Thrive uses gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people living with disabilities or ill health, or who are isolated, disadvantaged or vulnerable.". I have visited their garden near Reading, which is very interesting, and they also use the walled garden at The Vyne (National Trust property in Hampshire) and sites in Battersea Park, Birmingham and Gateshead. They have really useful advice on their website also - for instance how to garden if you can't bend easily. I helped my father keep his garden going when he was in his late 90s but Thrive also played a part, sending a team to tackle some jobs for him, which benefited both him and the members of the team they sent. They run courses on various topics and accredit profesionals in social and theraputic gardening, and more.
