Through the Wilderness Foundation education and therapy programmes we help young people reconnect to society and themselves through outdoor adventure and mentoring. Our programme facilitation highlights the positive impact of nature on personal and social wellbeing. Developing stewardship for nature and wild places is imbued through the teaching of Leave No Trace Ethics alongside volunteering opportunities.

Our mission is to preserve wild places and change lives through outreach programmes that educate, inspire and reconnect young people facing a number of challenges in their lives. The content of these programmes aims to equip and enable young people to acquire skills from within themselves to navigate their futures safely and successfully. We are working to keep people healthy and our planet wild!

We are accepting referrals for a new Out There cohort 5 starting on 26th November for four weeks. The programme has been created specifically to bridge the gap leading up to Christmas and in response to the second nationwide lockdown.

We are also accepting referrals for our children’s Brave Futures programme starting in February and for our Out There 2021 programmes.
