Woodland Wellbeing Projects

Central to our ethos has been to demonstrate the value of activities in the natural environment to people’s health and wellbeing. We have run a number of evaluated projects to apply (and develop) best practice in this field.

Our Woodland Wellbeing programme draws upon this practice, applying the principles of Forest School to deliver outdoor activity programmes tailored to the needs of groups including: adults with learning disabilities; people with mental health needs; people living with dementia; and young people at risk of exclusion.

Our work is delivered by Health & Wellbeing Officer: Nicola Ramsden, working with skilled Associate Rachel Tomlinson and/or trained volunteers. We can offer 6, 8, 12 & 16 week programmes and ‘taster days’.
