A FREE Programme for Young People (aged 13-25) - strengthen your emotional wellbeing by engaging in Nature and creative activities.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE THROUGHOUT COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.
The benefits of being outside in nature are plentiful – stress alleviation, relaxation and the reduction in symptoms of depression are just a few. It also helps social interaction so you make friends more easily and feel less isolated.
Why don’t you join us for five weekly FREE 2-hour sessions. Slow down and reconnect with yourself and your environment in this nature-based, discovery led programme.
Typical activities include walks, some light conservation work or gardening. This would be combined with a range of nature foccused creative activities designed to improve mental and emotional wellbeing. You do not need to be good at art to benefit from creating and exploring the art materials. There will be time to talk and share collective struggles if you wish to.

“I think this is the best activity programme that could be prescribed to young people with mental health issues and I really feel happy with what’s come out of it, and I’ve made a supportive group of friends – I would encourage anyone to do it and if I could I would love to do it every week” quote from young person who attended programme.
Nature is pleased with simplicity
