Wellbeing in Nature

These sessions are aimed to provide activities and opportunities with therapeutic benefits for adults struggling with mental health challenges.
We ran our first pilot project in the Autumn of 2017, where the participants really enjoyed the opportunities to spend time out in the woods being creative, constructive, sociable or just relaxing. After successfully managing to get funding to support the project, we began to provide weekly sessions every Thursday from Easter 2018. We are delighted to say that we have now received sufficient funding to guarantee that the sessions will run every Thursday in term time until Spring 2023.
Sessions are free to attend and open to anybody who feels that their mental and physical health could benefit from time spent in nature.
If you would like to know more please get in touch or check out our website.
We are extremely grateful to the following organisations that have provided the funding that allows us to run the Wellbeing in Nature Project: Recovery Devon; Sanctuary Housing; Devon Community Foundation; The National Lottery Community Fund; Tesco Bags of Help
