Our wellbeing programmes are all about improving mental health and wellbeing by reconnecting to nature and to community. We have programmes in Saltwell Park, Gateshead, Chopwell Woodland Park and Byker Community Centre as well as some nature trips around the North East. Some of our programmes are in 6-8 week blocks and some are ongoing. Our approach is based on the Forest School Model, evidence-based, person-centred and holistic and we aim to help you build resilience, confidence and wellbeing. During our programmes you'll learn new practical skills from bushcraft to gardening to environmental arts and crafts, practise some wellbeing techniques, meet new friends all whilst spending time outdoors relaxing in a peaceful natural setting. We also have training and volunteering opportunities for those who have tried our programmes and would like to develop their skills working in the outdoors and helping others to access these great experiences.
