information SERVICE DETAILS

Programmes of outdoor activities using local woodlands to help people feel more connected to nature.

ELGT has been working with a variety of community groups in a range of woodland activity projects over the past ten or more years and as such has built a strong network of community links.

ELGT has continued our involvement in encouraging people to access woodland areas on a regular basis. It is often the case that the leaders and workers in these groups are enthusiastic about outdoor-based activities but do not feel that they have the resources or skills needed to deliver a programme of activities. There are often a number of workers in each service and whilst we may have worked with some in previous programmes, it will be more possible by delivering additional programmes to reach and support more staff. This builds a stronger skills base within the organisation and allows them to establish woodland activities as central to their delivery programmes.

Thanks to the funding from Scottish Forestry through the community fund we have been able to work with the groups to develop and deliver a structured programme of six sessions. These sessions are delivered over six weeks, according to the needs of the group. At the outset of the project, we engage community group leaders and workers in designing the programme and planning the sessions. The sessions are delivered in woodland areas that the group could easily access on foot.
