Here at The Wilderness Foundation UK we’ve been “brainstorming”!! So far, we’ve managed to come up with 30 inspiring ideas to help WFUK raise awareness and funds. We’re sure that you can think of plenty more ways to help us. So, let’s seize the day and go for it…
The philosophy and work of WFUK attracts the support of those who believe in a better world. For over 30 years, we have been helping individuals and groups experience the irreplaceable quality of wilderness as a positive force for social and environmental sustainability. They benefit from nature’s significant contribution to the discovery of identity, perspective as well as leadership training and development (see below for a recap on our current projects).
People involved with WFUK believe that connecting with wild places and taking action as an individual has a positive and important impact on a global level.
We, like many small charities, are facing a very challenging year – but with your support we can continue to make a difference.
WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT, SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE THIS PIONEERING AND CRUCIAL WORK TO CHANGE LIVES AND SAVE WILD PLACES FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

Here are just some of the highlights of the Wilderness Foundation’s activity
Education and Leadership
Direct experience of nature rekindles deep connections with the natural world inspiring incredible journeys of self development. WFUK’s personalised wilderness trails transform lives from school and community groups to corporate and political leaders.
Health and Wellbeing, Peace and Reconciliation
The wilderness experience is a powerful tool for social and individual change. WFUK works with vulnerable young people, victims of conflict and communities facing health and social challenges across Europe and Africa. We cross religious and political divides and bring people together in wilderness where a sense of nature, common humanity, understanding and existence come to the fore.
Wilderness Therapy is a positive experience where individuals develop through their contact with nature and adventure. A range of experiential therapeutic programmes take place in natural, wild, or remote outdoor settings.
These programmes provide either counselling, psychotherapy, or therapeutic facilitation, but always offer an authentic connection with nature evoking personal change through increased self-awareness, interdependence, recovery, and personal growth.
Whatever you do, please do something, so that we can continue to work for Wilderness, Wildlife and People.
