Live Wild offer bespoke courses and programmes to work with local services and organisations based in the community. We welcome expressions of interests from organisations that would like to commission our services or who would be willing to work in partnership with us so we could gain specific needs based funding.
Our team consists of social workers, specialists in ecopsychology, teachers and play workers as well as all being trained in outdoor leadership whether it be Forest School, Bushcraft, foraging, nature connection and more..
Why we offer this work to groups
There is a strong body of evidence linking nature connection work and natural play to improved physical and mental well-being and resilience. (summary in National Trust 2012; RSPB 2012; Play England 2007, MIND 2013; Bird 2012)
