Participants are in a position of wanting to move their lives forward positively, but require further resilience building, learning to build healthy relationships, development of boundaries, trauma support as required, and skills to be able to manage themselves positively and be independent of abusive relationships in the future. The project is facilitated by outdoor therapists who will provide support for participants who have experienced trauma through domestic violence and also those with complex needs that continue to hold them back in life.
The project’s outdoor facilitator offers training and skills in bush craft techniques, outdoor cooking skills, camp craft, outdoor volunteering such as tree planting or conservation. We include visiting specialist support in areas such as money management, employability training and development, resilience training and other accreditations such as basic Neuro-linguistic training (NLP) and First Aid. A graduation ceremony follows at the end of the 10 weeks and the offer of ongoing mentoring for up to 3 months post programme.
