We offer programmes and one off sessions that has the natural environment at its core.

Bush Craft and Forest School

Bush craft and forest school session can be run as part of schools alternative curriculum programme. Learning skills such as fire lighting using natural and man made tinders, shelter building and survival, plant and tree identification, wild cooking, map reading and woodcraft and woodland management can teach an abundance of skills. These skills can lead to further education and training, increased confidence, positive relationships and an awareness of our environment. Young people can work towards certificates and awards such as AQA Unit Awards and The John Muir Award.

Bush craft and outdoor activities can help engage young people that are at risk of exclusion or anti-social behaviour. Learning outside the classroom has a real positive impact on students that are struggling with mainstream education. Are aim is to work alongside schools and youth organisations to help re-kindle the spark for learning and offer pathways to further education, training and employment.

Woodland Therapy

The ethos of Woodland Therapy is to provide an affordable counselling service which is set in a natural environment that promotes mental and physical well-being alongside each other. Allowing the local community to gain access to a professional service, that is designed to give everyone the same opportunity. We believe that taking away the four walls of a therapeutic office also takes down certain boundaries between client and therapist, therefore allowing a more open and honest relationship to be built.
